Donations for Current Restoration Projects
LMS Black 5 number 5025 – The oldest surviving Black 5
The original budget of £354,050 has been spent wisely and with care but additional boiler work has cost a further £39,345, new cylinders and frame. Repairs £33,350 and other work such as a new cab, injectors and super heaters upwards of £22,500.
Although most of the work now being carried out is labour intensive, certain costly goods and services are essential to finishing the job and it is only with your help that we can make it happen.
We still need to complete the tender tank and the under frame, produce boiler cladding, purchase copper pipe and various fixings and fastenings and pay for transport, cranage and specialist machining.
The Watkinson Trust would like to thank you for any generous donation you are able to make towards a successful conclusion.
