Isn't the present appeal exactly that? (But I agree with the rest of Bill's post.)
They are - Fenchurch is one of two locomotives getting into the overhaul queue.
It is. Hence the rather lukewarm response. That's exactly my point.
If the investigation results in a green light for the overhaul, I'm sure we'll see the appeal proper launched with much bigger fanfare.
I asked the this question about Tallylyn and was told that the wheel centres and reversing wheel were original.
I would need that to be proved - by destructive testing!
Well the old lady is working on that, her coupling rods were original as well until she had an "ooh nasty" moment a few years ago (with apologies to Mr Phillips)
I see the latest Heritage Railway Magazine has a much more positive slant on the T3 appeal.
Merry Christmas to all and thank you for your kind support of the initial Crowdfunder for LSWR T3 No.563.
The crowdfunder closes on December 23rd at 17.09 so if you can, please log on to the Crowdfunder page and donate! We have been bowled over by the initial 2 months of fundraising and would like to encourage all to give No.563 a little Christmas present.
To those who purchased a Winter Warm Up Gala mug with all proceeds going to the T3 appeal a Big Thank You.
There are still a few still available from the railways shop for £7 and all profits going into the T3 appeal.
The shop is open up to and including Monday and then closed until 10th February.
Or phone 01929 475204 (p+p £2.70)
If you have any difficulties please PM me
A big thank you again.
