    Story

    As part of our pioneer battery traction project, we are converting a former South West Trains 4-CIG Motor Brake coach to be self propelled by battery power. As part of this huge project, we need to have all of the relevant components which we have already purchased, professionally overhauled. The ultimate aim being, to have an iconic Southern Region "slam-door" train running under its own power on a heritage line for the first time. As part of the project, the vehicle will be fitted with a miniature buffet area and a fully fitted out wheelchair accessible space within the former luggage cage area. We are aware that funding for this nature of project is extremely tight, however even spare change donations or the price of a pint would be greatly received!

      The motors are now safe and sound at their overhaul facility and are being examined before work commences - thank you to all that have donated their hard earned cash, it'll give the project the extra little "push" that it needs.

      These are our EE507-F traction motors and EE704-G MG set involved in the appeal - palletised and ready to go to our overhaul contractor.
