Apparently 89001 is up for auction, but its likely the scrap dealers will be interested in getting their hands on the loco.

The AC Loco group want to preserve it, but dont have the estimated 5figure sum. So they need donations fast. The auction begins 31st October.

Grab the form, write a cheque and send it off! Im sure donations big and small will all be welcome!

If they don't save it, will money be refunded?
That's a bit of a cheek isn't it? They're a preservation group who, like all others, rely on donations so they'd simply use the money on something else. I don't think you understand that the only money many groups get is that from donations. If it weren't for donations you wouldn't have all these preserved diesel locos and steamers to enjoy.

To answer Mojo's question - yes, cheques will not be cashed until the group is notified of a successful bid, unless you specify otherwise.
