"The 47357 Jinty Appeal was formed in early 2011, by Marcello Gabrielli, thanks to his love of the Class 3F Jinty Locomotive . Out of all the heritage railways in the country there is not one appeal to overhaul a Jinty, therefore we wanted to push the boat out and restore 47357 one of the most famous Jintys in history. Since we formed the Jinty Appeal we have made excellent progress, however we still have a tremendous amount of work to do. If we can keep steaming ahead with the appeal, we shall once again see 47357 in all her glory. But to do so we need your help to raise £40,000 to complete the restoration properly. If you wish to back our cause and we certainly hope you do, keep an eye out for us at railway exhibitions, you can see where we shall be by looking at the calendar at the top of the page on the website . Alternatively please feel free to make a donation no matter how small, or purchase any of our merchandise. We stand no chance of restoring 47357 without your support, if you want to get involved hands on please drop us a line."
