Please join The Mikado Club and help us to wheel No. 2007 Prince of Wales this year.

The Mikado Club – Following the success of The Founders Club (to get the project to the point of cutting the frames) and The Boiler Club (to fund the construction of the boiler) we have decided to establish The Mikado Club to fund the wheeling of No. 2007 Prince of Wales.

We set an initial target for The Founders Club of at least £100,000 from 100 ‘Founders’ but due to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters we actually raised £450,000 from 360 donors. Our aim for The Boiler Club is to raise at least £600,000 from 300 supporters each donating £2,000 in up to 40 payments of £50 and by March 2016 we were already over one-third of the way there. If we are to remain on schedule to complete No. 2007 Prince of Wales in 2021 we need to wheel the engine this year. We have therefore set ourselves the challenge of raising £200,000 through The Mikado Club from 160 supporters each donating £1,000 (plus Gift Aid) to the project in up to eight payments of £125 by standing order.  You can download the donation form (and privacy policy) here and the standing order form here.

For further information email us on or call our hotline on 01325 460163. Together we can build this remarkable locomotive!  Special benefits for members of The Mikado Club:

• Reserved seat on No. 2007’s first main line train

• Reasonable access to No. 2007 at all times

• Exclusive Mikado Club badge

• Opportunity to join one of the teams building No. 2007
