Canadian Pacific project

Please help us to raise £185,000 towards the overhaul and restoration costs of our flagship steam locomotive no. 35005 Canadian Pacific.

‘CanPac’, as it is affectionately known, is the oldest and fastest survivor of Oliver Bulleid’s Merchant Navy class. It spent much of its life hauling heavy express trains between London and the South Coast, including those full of holiday makers or boat trains. It would also have been used for troop and freight movements during the Second World War. Built at Eastleigh in 1941 by a workforce that would have included many women, CanPac is an excellent local example of heavy engineering. It touched the lives of many throughout its working career, including those who worked on it and those who were hauled by it.

In 2015 the Mid Hants Railway was awarded £895,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund towards the total project cost of £1.5m. The balance of the project's costs will be met through volunteering, fundraising and donations to the Mid Hants Railway Preservation Society.
