Help us to build a new locomotive for our railway by donating towards to purchase of a donor locomotive - a Hunslet Jenbach from 1994.

The Perrygrove Railway is in much need of another locomotive. Our existing diesel locomotive Jubilee is over worked and under powered, and we want to increase the number of days we open. To do this we need to build another to loco to help Jubilee share the work. We have identified for sale a donor locomotive that would give us a terific head start. Jubilee is built on a Hunslet Jenbach and we found another one that would be rebuilt at Perrygrove in our workshops. This fund raising campaign is to purchase the Hunslet Jenbach to get us rolling!
