The word is spreading!
The LNWR George the Fifth Steam Locomotive Trust and our quest to build a new LNWR George the Fifth class engine for heritage and mainline use has garnered the attention of the heritage rail press. Heritage Railway, Steam Railway and Railway magazines have all recently featured articles outlining the establishment of the trust, our aim to build a new member of this brilliant class of engines and our recent attendance at Railfest in York where, thanks to the generosity of supporter, Mr Robin Dean, the trust acquired the first piece of the locomotive, a genuine LNWR whistle.
The offers of support and interest shown has been tremendous however we continue to welcome offers of assistance, donors, subscribers and friends. Head over to our website for more information on how you can assist. The Trust is working hard to implement the next phase and we hope to be able to present further news of developments relatively soon.
In the meantime, one of our young supporters, Tom Mainprize has established a Facebook page dedicated to the Trust and the project. We invite all users of Facebook to head on over to Tom’s page and sign up. Tom will be regularly updating the page with news and articles. As a forum for like-minded enthusiasts and supporters on Facebook, the page promises to be place for lively discussions concerning the trust, the project, the LNWR and the steam preservation movement in general:
