Various grants and donations have enabled the project to restore this locomotive to operational condition to reach an advanced stage but we still need your help to reach our target of £50,000. Please help us get the last surviving N Class Loco in steam again and operate on the Mainline. There are various ways that you can Donate to the fund.
Simply send us a good old fashioned cheque in the post. No fuss or nonsense. This is the most welcome form of donation as there are minimal costs and overheads for us. Learn More

All Donations of any amount are gratefully received. Our initial target is to raise £50,000 towards the ongoing overhaul of N Class 31874. Once this has been paid for, the fund will subsequently be used to return 31625 to steam and to overhaul 31806 when the time comes. In the future the fund may also be used to purchase the additional equipment needed for the locos to become main line certified.
In the extremely unlikely event that the amount raised exceeds the amount required to overhaul, equip and maintain the locos. The trustees of the Swanage Railway Trust will reallocate the surplus to another project on the Swanage Railway.
