Class 108 DMU Milestone

DMU ThermometerWe have reached a significant milestone in our Rolling Stock Fund Appeal.

With the help of Wyre Council, society members and friends, together with Lancashire County Council (c/o Councillor Jim Lawrenson), we have now passed the £15,000 mark.

This enables us to purchase the Class 108 DMU and means that we are more than half way to completing the appeal.

Considering that we only started the appeal in November 2015 we have done very well.

Transport and Refurbishment

We’re not quite there yet though. Now we need £10,000 for the refurbishment costs and £3,000 to cover the diesel’s transport to Fleetwood.

Thank you to everyone for your continued generosity.

Latest Update

We are now on £16,300 meaning we have a good part of our refurbishment costs, but continue to rely on members and friends to carry on donating to enable us to bring a rail service back to the PWR.
