Funding the Restoration
General items for sponsorship

The following table gives a list of the large and grouped items required for the Locomotive and Tender that have been grouped into the 'general' items category. The items have been broken down into a number of 'units', especially important for the higher value items as it brings the unit value into the reach of most people. 

It's then simply a case of deciding which item interests you and how many units you wish to sponsor. You can even pick a number of units from a selection of different items if you wish.

Not everyone will feel that they are able to make a single payment up front, so for those who wish to spread out the sponsorship load there are facilities available to be able take out a subscription for a set period of your choice. This does not prevent those who do want to make a single payment as that option is also available. 

Full details of the 'general' items and how to sponsor them are available on the downloadable form at the foot of the page.
