Slade Green Open Day 15th July 2017.
We are all ready to roll, see you at Slade Green, don't forget to spend lots on our sales stand, all profits go to restore our units!
There is a public open day at Slade Green depot, near Dartford, on Saturday 15th July. The morning is for staff only but the public are admitted from 12.30-4.30pm. We are pleased to announce that 2EPB 5759 and MLV 68002 are expected to attend. Slade Green housed EPB units for the longest time, and it has been 22 years since 5759 was last there. See the preservation pages for some of the hard work our restoration team are currently doing.
Even better see 5759 and 68002 for real this Saturday!
PRISM Fund grant awarded for 5759 doors project.
We are very pleased that the historical importance of 2EPB 5759 has been recognised through the PRISM fund (the preservation of items of Industrial and Scientific Merit). We have been awarded a grant of £2,824 towards the rebuilding of the brake van and drivers doors on 5759. The PRISM fund expert advisers were very keen to support such an important project. The rebuilt doors are being refitted as weather and volunteer time allows.
Please consider donating to our "Doors Appeal" so we can rebuild and overhaul the 34 passenger doors on the unit. Each door costs about £500 to rebuild. If you are reading this then you are likely to be interested in our vintage trains. Please consider donating towards the cost of our door rebuilding. Even a small donation is appreciated. If you can sponsor the rebuild of a door, or more, then do not be afraid to do so! Donations can be posted to EPBPG, 36 Park Road, Hounslow. Middlesex. TW3 2EU.
Please make cheques payable to "EPB Preservation Group". We are a registered charity (number 1132225) so donations can be gift aided, increasing the amount we receive by 25%. If you pay income or capital gains tax then your donations can be gift aided. Any further enquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org
