Once in a lifetime Christmas present opportunity for steam fans?

The P2 Steam Locomotive Company, the organisation building Britain’s most powerful steam locomotive No. 2007 Prince of Wales, is delighted to announce that its Founders Club launch appeal has already reached double its initial target. In an extraordinary demonstration of support, The Founders Club passed 200 members in only two months since its launch generating £200,000 towards the initial phase of this exciting project.

The formal launch of the project will take place in February 2014, at which point, members of The Founders Club will be invited to become the first monthly covenanters to the project and the monthly donation scheme will open.

Mark Allatt, Chairman of The P2 Steam Locomotive Company said, “We always knew that building a P2 would spark the imagination of many, but we are delighted to pass 200 members of The Founders Club in only two months. With Christmas fast approaching, we are happy to offer membership to The Founders Club as a gift opportunity for that special steam fan in your life. You can download the registration form here.

Members of the Founders Club each donate £1,000 (in up to four payments of £250 by standing order) allowing the purchase of the steel and subsequent cutting to take place early in 2014. In return for this commitment and as well as being the first contributors to this exciting project, members receive these exclusive benefits:

  • Reserved seat on No. 2007’s first main line train
  • Reasonable access to No. 2007 at all times

  • First choice of components to sponsor
