Although I am still reeling from the news that 40135 is very poorly, I have the MINDSET that the loco WILL RUN AGAIN.
The DIAGNOSIS was as bad as it could get, BUT we ARE NOT FEELING SORRY FOR OURSELVES.
We WILL earn the money required and we will STRIVE to get the one surviving gorgeous split box Class 40 operational again.
So FOLKS, as of NOW…. The 40135 CRANKSHAFT FUNDRAISING APPEAL is OPEN !
CFPS would LOVE to have its own diesel shed for our 3 locos, but that will have to wait until we get 40135 back in action.
We are not blind to the health issues and difficult financial climate prevailing, but if anyone has even the tiniest amount of spare cash, could we possibly have it please ?
You can send a cheque made payable to THE CFPS or CLASS 40 PRESERVATION SOCIETY, or you can pay DIRECT into The CFPS bank account. You can also help raise funds by clicking the Donate Now button below.
