Standard 4 Tank engine project

BR Standard class 4 Tank engine no. 80150. We urgently need to fabricate a new cab roof at a cost of £4,000.

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. The restoration team have now freed the bogie and aim to install springs and lubrication to enable the loco to be moved around the railway later in 2018. Your donations for the cab roof will make a significant contribution towards the ultimate restoration of this loco.
Affectionately known as “BOLSO” after a mis-understanding about its number, this loco is a long-term restoration project being undertaken by an enthusiastic band of volunteers.

A big THANK YOU for your donations - we have achieved our target in just 10 weeks. We will now proceed with the fabrication and fitting of the cab roof. Your further donations are welcome and we will be starting a new appeal for other critical parts of the loco in the future.
