Occasionally we get asked how people can help 50050. The loco is owned by Harry and financed by Harry and friends of the loco. If you want to make a donation, it would obviously be gratefully received and will of course speed up the restoration of the loco.In exchange, we would be happy to show supporters around the loco at Yeovil and keep them informed of progress. You would also be welcome at one of our testing days, so you could see and hear 50050 running again. We understand that there are several high profile and popular locos that need your money, but any support for 50050 will be most welcome
We are also asked about working on the loco. As working parties are usually mid week, it is obviously difficult to attract volunteers. However weekend working parties could be introduced if anyone wants to come down to Yeovil. Especially needed is somebody with carpentry skills, as we would like to replace the wood in both cabs. Also, if anybody with 50 restoration experience would like to quote to work on 50050 on a contract basis, could you please get in touch.
If anyone has any questions or would like more information on 50050 at Yeovil, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
