Our plan to bring back steam to West Fife is progressing well, but we really need a bit of help with the water tank, its full of holes!

Choo Choooooo!!!!!!!!

We're brining a steam loco back to life, and you could help us to reach our goal, Help us to put FIRE IN THE BELLY of our wee steam loco! Imagine being able to travel on our line hauled by our wee loco in the near future, knowing that you helped make it happen!

Our previous successful appeal brought home the loco to West Fife and allowed us to carry out initial work, since then we've progressed much further and completed welding work and are now fitting boiler tubes in readiness for pressure testing. 

While all this has been going on, we're now turning our attention to the water tank, which unfortunately is as watertight as a tea-bag!

Restoring a steam loco is quite a daunting task, and we need a bit of help to cover the costs of having the tank rebuilt, so we'd be very grateful to any and all that contribute towards the cost. All going to plan we hope to have her running again in 2021. Help us to put FIRE IN ITS BELLY again! ChooChoo!
