    Hello Everyone, we've been offered a track panel by a local preserved railway which is just what we need to display all the various parts of our new 'Manchester United' engine.

    It will also be a safe resting place for our loco frames when they are cut.

    However, we need to raise £500 in the next couple of weeks to buy the panel and move it to our base at the Mizens Railway.

    If we can't raise the cash in time the track will go for scrap which would be a terrible waste ! If all our Members and Supporters were to send just a couple of £'s each we will be able to buy the track panel and pay for moving it.

    The money can be sent via Paypal to engine61662@btinternet.com or via the 'Donate' button on our Facebook page. Normal donations and Share Purchases can be made
    via the details on our website page http://www.engine61662appeal.co.uk/help.html

    Thank you so much in advance if you are able to help or would like to join us. 

    Best Regards, Ken, Project Leader.
