hanks to your continuing generosity, theY14:2014has now reached and breached the £60,000 milestone.
Although we were frustratingly unable to have the Muddle and Go Nowhere Bar in traffic for the weekend due to the overrunning inspection pit works at Weybourne (it will return for the 1960s weekend on the 5th & 6th April), we have been humbled by the generosity of our supporters who filled appeal envelopes full and brimming to get ourJ15 locomotiveback into steam, in the guise of a Great Eastern Railway Y14.
This means we have now raised over 60% of our £100,000 total. We were able to raise the first £35,000 in less than six weeks - now help us do the same again to complete the appeal and get the J15 back on the rails!
This latest push in the appeal means further works can be completed on the locomotive, including further boiler work. The tender frames have now been painted in the final GER blue livery, along with the three driving wheelsets.
Society members will have seen a new appeal leaflet included with edition 161 ofJoint Line- if you haven't yet donated to the appeal, please do so immediately. With your help, we really can have the Y14 in steam for 2014. With the current rate of progress, this is not an empty statement! Pleasedonate today.
