New recruits to the Wisbech and March Bramley Line joined after supporters visited a military vehicle display at Denver, near Downham Market.
Brian Baylis, chairman, said: "Sadly, there were not too many visitors, but this did not deter the 'roadshow' team from getting a number of new members to join.
"There were some visitors who would have liked to have joined, but because they live too far away to help, they made donations to the appeal to help raise the money for lease and legal advice."
The aim of the Bramley Line committee is to re-open the rail link between Wisbech and March, which was closed to passenger traffic in 1968.
