Volunteers at a North Yorkshire railway are trying to collect 40 miles of coins to pay for an extension to the track.
The Wensleydale Railway, which runs between Leeming Bar and Redmire, re-opened nine years ago.
There are now plans to refurbish the track from Leeming Bar to Northallerton. The county town was once the end of the line. It will cost up to £40 thousand to do the work and the group has raised around half of that so far.
Members of the Wensleydale Railway Association are hoping they will collect enough coins to extend the service in time for its tenth anniversary next summer.
