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 decided to establish The Mikado Club to fund the wheeling of No. 2007 Prince of Wales.  The Mikado Club was launched in March 2016 to raise £200,000 from 160 members to wheel the engine and was extended in May 2017 to 200 members and £250,000 to also wheel the tender.  By May 2018 the club was full with 200 members signed up.

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

• First choice of other components to sponsor

• Special Mikado Club day with Tornado

• Special limited edition version (signed/numbered) of Stephen Bainbridge’s new painting of No. 2007 Prince of Wales at Darlington station
