Becoming a shareholder means that you are part owner of the railway and anyone aged 18 and over can apply. Shares can also be bought by adults on behalf of children.
At present we have some 4,000 people who own shares in the Company. They all have a right to attend Annual General Meetings and vote on Company business. Shareholders also have the right to receive dividends, although no dividends are currently anticipated.
Share revenue is vital to Peak Rail in progressing the development of the railway, for example extending the line and purchasing assets for use on the railway, such as buildings, track and rolling stock.
Shares can be sold by shareholders to other people and they are also transferable on the death of a shareholder.
For those who are interested in acquiring shares, or adding to their existing shareholding, but do not wish to make a large single payment, Peak Rail’s “Share Club” may be of interest. Joining this Club allows someone to acquire shares on an annual basis by making a small monthly payment, helping to spread the cost over time.
