    You have to type the number in manually, copy and pasting seems to add a few spaces into the box and therefore it doesn't recognise it. Seems to be a bug with the website. Either way! Nominated :)

    Thanks for all the nominations, every one of them is greatly appreciated. The money would be a great help in getting the barn finished in time to ensure GSN is kept dry over the winter. IMG_4039.jpg
    A photo of her last weekend. We removed all the parts from the smokebox and preparing her for the AGM. We are limited in what work we can do currently but proper working parties will start just after the AGM on the 18th.

    Just seen this. Nominated.
    Some years ago, I used to know the chap who originally purchased this locomotive out of Barry scrapyard. It was always his intention that it should be rebuilt to original condition, too. My heartfelt best wishes to the project.

    We have just reached our target and on behalf of all the trustees and volunteers involved with 35011 we’d like to thank you all for your donations. Originally our plan was to get the boiler off in early June but with the Coronavirus shut down our time scale will have to be altered. Rest assured once we are able to get back on site we’ll be getting that boiler lifted as soon as it’s possible. Any additional funds raised will go towards the restoration of the locomotive. Thank you once again for all your support.
