Tuesday, 21st November, 2006
A big BIG thanks to everyone who helped make this possible - and that's a lot of people! Individual thanks will follow, but bear with us - we have a lot to do now to complete the purchase.
As soon as funds have cleared, final pledges come in, and the sale is concluded we'll post details of the appeal's grand total. If you sent us a contribution by cheque, this will be cashed tomorrow (Wednesday).
Whilst the main purchase appeal is now closed, if you would like to contribute to the future of 89001 you still can - we are going to need a lot more money to get the loco restored, so every penny still counts!
