Progress on the Appeals
Dusty Miller reports that cash for the restoration of Metropolitan No. 1 is coming in slowly and he feels sure that members and visitors who have contributed and who look forward to seeing the 0-4-4T in steam will be pleased to know that we hope, one day, to use No. 1 for working outside the confines of the site.
The 100 Club (have you joined?) is active and concentrating on paying the outstanding purchase and transport costs incurred with the acquisition of 7200 from Barry. When these costs are cleared it may be possible to allocate funds for restoration. Raffle and sales profits from Chiltern Rail Tours are allocated on a 50 / 50 basis to 7200 and 6989.
