Donate to the restoration

Please help us raise a total of £185,000 of overhaul and restoration costs, to bring our flagship steam locomotive, 35005 'Canadian Pacific' back to life!

Sponsor a stay

The HLF supported restoration of our railway’s flagship steam locomotive, 35005 Canadian Pacific to working order, is progressing swiftly. However, upon disassembly of the firebox, we have found that its condition is far worse than previous surveys suggested. We need to replace the inner firebox and 2200 stays - so we need your support. You can help us by sponsoring replacement stays for just £25 a stay. This comes with a number of benefits!

  • Sponsor 8 Stays and you will get a seat on the inaugural train when Canadian Pacific returns to service, currently planned for 2018.
  • Sponsor 40 Stays and you will get a 20 mile round trip footplate ride on Canadian Pacific when it returns to service, currently planned for 2018.

Please help us bring this incredible locomotive back to life.

Total raised so far £25,825

Target £55,000

The Sponsor a stay appeal is one part of our target to raise £185,000 towards the £1.5 million CanPac restoration project. General donations can be made to the fund instead of sponsoring stays if preferred. All donations are welcome no matter how small they may seem to you.  Thank you to everyone who has already donated towards the project, we greatly appreciate your support.
