A big THANK YOU for your donations - we have achieved our appeal target of £4,000 for a new cab roof in just 10 weeks. We will now proceed with the fabrication and fitting of the cab roof. This will help to protect an area of the loco that has hereto sustained most damage - the corrosion to frames, frame stretcher and bogie beneath the cab roof had meant that the loco could not be moved without de-railing. With further work, we hope to be able to move the loco and potentially put it on public display sometime later in 2018.
Your further donations are welcome and we will be starting a new appeal for other critical parts of the loco in the future.
