Could You Help Us?
Formed in the summer of 2017, through the partnership of the Fenchurch Fund & the Villa's Gang, the Little Loco Group aspires to help support, restore & preserve the history of the Bluebell Railway's smaller fleet of engines.
Our current focus is to see the Bluebell Railway's third engine, the forgotten P, No 27 Primrose steam once again! So far through the generous hours and fundraising efforts of the members of the Fenchurch Fund, as well as those who have donated and supported us we have raised in excess of over £40,000 towards the restoration of 27. This has enabled us so far to acquire a new set of frames,replacing the origianal life expired ones, as well as manufacturing a new cylinder block for No 27!
But to see 27 run once again we expect that we need to raise in the region of £150,000 to return her to active service! so could you help us achieve our aims? Please follow our donate links below or subscribe to our Rivet club and help us to return the forgotten P Primrose back into steam!
