A volunteer-led engineering project
No.27 was in a very bad way having last been used in 1974. Progress with the restoration so far has seen the frames dismantled, new cylinders designed in CAD, cast and machined, and new main frames cut, machined, drilled, and with the remaining good sections of the frame stretchers, riveted together. Much other work has also been done, and regular updates are avilable on the Project 27 Blogspot and Facebook Page.
Could you help?
Could you help to see No 27 Primrose run again? So far through the generous hours and efforts of the members of the Fenchurch Fund and all of those who have donated and supported so far we have raised in excess of over £30,000 towards the restoration of 27. But to see 27 run once again we expect that we need to raise in the region of £125,000 to return her to active service! So if you feel that you’d like to help us achieve our aims then please follow our donate links below or subscribe to our Rivet Club and help us to return the forgotten P Primrose back into steam!
