Why we need your help

BR Standard class 4 Tank engine 2-6-4T no. 80150.

Affectionately known as “BOLSO” after a mis-understanding about its number, this loco is a long-term restoration project being undertaken by an enthusiastic band of volunteers.

Following a very successful appeal in 2018 for funds to fabricate a new cab roof.  The cab roof is now complete and awaiting fitting.

Other recent developmsnts include:

  • The new Smokebox Ring has now been fabricated and is awaiting collection, whilst a new Smokebox Door has been ordered.
  • The Shovelling Plate Support has been fabricated and is now fitted.
  • The Damper Handwheels have been machined ready to complete the restoration of the damper assembly

There are still many small parts that need work on or creating, and so please donate to our 'Push for Parts' which include a new Chimney, Side Sandboxes, Steam Heat Reducing Valve, Dome cover and Steam Pipe covers.
