    Group now renamed to Railway Preservation Group Ltd and is apparently confident that they can move the sleeper to a new railway, remove the asbestos and restore it internally along with an external repaint, all for £15k

    They are also looking at buying an operational loco with 3 years ticket remaining. No target for this is given.

    Yes I am an active volunteer
    It is qood to hear someone is taking an interest in it and from a quick search I see they have a website http://railway-preservation.org.uk/main.php?page=home
    I walk past it every week and it is not actually in that bad a condition, although the interior is not good. I wish them well. The SCR I understand has commissioned a report on any asbestos in it so they will at least know what the situation is.
