2012 Fundraising begins!

This coming weekend (27th Jan to 29th Jan) sees the start of our 2012 fundraising at Heritage railway galas and events, and what a way to start it. We're off to the Great Central Railway for their biggest ever Steam gala, with no less than 10 locomotives in Steam. Our sales stand will be located at Loughborough station in our usual spot next to the “Clan Project”. Please come down and say hello, make a donation or purchase one of our fabulous sales items. You can also join up as a member or donor on the day, which of course saves buying a stamp, to help support the building of “The Unknown Warrior”.
We hope to see you there and I hope to report on a great weekend at the Start of next week.
Thank you Gavin

  1. Hello to all.
    What a great set of pics showing the springs and their red hot buckles. Takes me back to when I was working for BR at Wolverton Works. Although I worked as a Millwright, I used to repair some of the machines in the smithy. They only dealt with carriage springs back then, but it facinated me how they were stripped, cleaned and refitted. Serious engineering! Miss it too. Still a railway buff, its in the blood!
    I only just rememmber a few Patriots still running through Wolverton back in the early 60s. Always in a filthy condition.
    Good luck with the project.
