    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Like all mainline steam locomotives, 6201 is an 'antique on wheels'. The 6201 Princess Elizabeth Society strives to preserve those values of excellence for the delight, inspiration and education of future generations.

    In 2016, 6201 majestically roamed Britains mainline rail network carrying thousands of passengers on special excursions, but came to a halt when it suffered various internal problems and was rapidly withdrawn from service in December.

    A comprehensive schedule of work covering the planned winter maintenance has already been established, but following the issue with the small tubes, the boiler inspector has required that the boiler and firebox should be lifted from the frames in order for a thorough and detailed inspection to take place, including non destructive testing of key elements.

    The cost of completing this task, which includes the hire of a crane and the boiler inspectors tasks, has been quoted at £12,000. Until the society reach that target through the fundraising page, the group are unable to carry out further work on the locomotive.

    A donation of £50 or more will see your name placed in a draw to win a Hornby Golden Jubillee 18ct gold 00-gauge model of No. 6201. Silver donations are those in excess of £105 (see below), the cost of a small tube, which will be included in a draw for 10 premier dining seats with Steam Dreams. A gold donation is for a sum in excess of £5000 which will offers a footplate day with 6201 with lunch as well as 2 nights B&B.

    6201 had the privilege to work numerous Royal Trains in its time, more recently transporting Her Majesty The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh as part of the Jubilee tour of the UK in 2012.

    If you share these values, please support the Society by becoming a member, or by making a donation.
