Railfuture Fighting Fund Award of £500 for Beattock Station Action Group

The Board of Directors of Railfuture has agreed to contribute £500 from its Fighting Fund to Beattock Station Action Group (BSAG) towards a feasibility and market study into the reopening of Beattock station on the West Coast mainline.

Railfuture head of Infrastructure & Networks Group, Chris Austin, reviewed our application support and said,

“I would have no hesitation in recommending that we allocate £500 to this project and we could learn much from its outcome, which could be applied to other re-openings.”

Martin Brown, BSAG Chair, said,

“The long term aim remains for the fund to provide the appraisal for a Station for Beattock which will provide significant benefits for the communities and its residents. We continue our campaign and are grateful for the support of Railfuture”
