BUY THE POWER OF STEAM THIS CHRISTMAS!
Unique opportunity to sponsor a component throughout the twelve days of Christmas and help to build Britain’s most powerful steam locomotive.
This Christmas will be the first time that members of the public will be able to sponsor a component for Britain’s newest and most powerful express passenger steam locomotive. For a limited time only, parts for giant new Gresley class P2 No. 2007 Prince of Wales, will be available for sponsorship to people who are not members of The Founders Club (which funded the project’s dramatic racing start) or its ‘P2 for the price of a pint’ monthly covenantors. Components sponsored through the Dedicated Donation Scheme range in price from one of over 1,000 driven bolts & nuts for £25 to the complete exhaust steam injector for £15,000 – an ideal Christmas present for the railway enthusiast in your family.
People who subscribe to the Dedicated Donation scheme will have their names (or that of the gift’s recipient) inscribed on the official roll of honour at Darlington Locomotive Works listing the components sponsored, receive a certificate recording the sponsorship and an A4 copy of the component drawing.
For the purpose of the campaign, we will be listing a new component on our Facebook page daily throughout the first 12 days of December, however there are also many more components currently available to sponsor.
For further information on sponsoring a component, please contact
Thank you to everyone who has supported the project so far.
Remember, it’s still not too late to sponsor a component. The Dedicated Donations Scheme will remain open to everyone until the end of December, when it will once again revert back to being a benefit to our regular supporters!
Items from £25 – £15,000 are still available. Please contact
