Logo for East Lancashire Railway Trust

The strategic development of the railway is led by a partnership organisation, The ELR Trust which was formed in 1984. The Trust is made up of three local authorities (Bury Council, Rossendale Borough Council and Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council) and the East Lancashire Light Railway Company (ELLR Co). The local authorities are the land owners while the ELLR Co is the operating company that leases land and property, runs train services and railway events.
