The Trust will occasionally make Grants to schemes which significantly enhance Transport preservation. A good past example of this being seed funding for a specialist apprentice program.

To assist members in progressing their projects, the Trust will approve loans to members. Any request for a loan must have a clear link to a specific preservation project, meet defined financial conditions and be able demonstrate a clear route to how the loan can be repaid.
These loans can be of upto 5 years duration and for amounts between £5,000 and £10,000. Before a loan can be agreed, our Trustees will need to be satisfied that sufficient revenue can be generated from the project to repay the loan in the required timescale, and the loan must clearly be about preserving a significant item(s) of Transport Heritage. Security will also be required to protect the Trust's Funds
Examples of where the Trust has assisted projects via Loans are:-
- Baby Deltic Recreation Project - assistance for materials to commence the project
- 1903 Electric Autocar Trust - bridging finance associated with HLF payments
- Gwili Vintage Carriage Group - for cosmetic restoration of Taff Vale 28
