Appeal Progress (January 2016)
The Engine appeal has only a limited number of "Buy a Litre" plaques left for eventual fitment to the engine covers once fitted to the chassis, if you would like a name of your choosing putting within this Iconic locomotive then please get in touch.
Due to our recent purchase of 58022 we will be issuing fresh appeals and associated fundraising activities in due course.
Many Thanks for all your support thus far, but as you can expect we still have a long way to go!

LMS 10000 and 10001 were the ancestors of all current British mainline diesel locomotives. Designed by H. G. Ivatt and built by the London Midland and Scottish railway at its Derby works in 1947, they proved many parts that are still in use on the British railways network today.
The society is a not for profit organisation, made up of volunteers with a shared interest in the recreation and operation of this historic landmark in the British railways story.
