Funding the Restoration
Specific items for sponsorship

The following table gives a list of 'specific' items required for the Locomotive and Tender. The cost of each item is shown and you're invited to take charge of funding one (or more) of these items.

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