A heritage railway restoration project has launched a £40,000 fundraising bid after planners gave the go-ahead for a new workshop. Stainmore Railway Company, which is run by volunteers based at Kirkby Stephen East Station, has been given permission to build the 150ft (45.7m) workroom. But it needs to raise the money for the building, which will ensure restorers no longer have to work outside. The firm also plans to open platforms which have been closed for 40 years.
