27 Jul Eponym for an ‘8P’: The Shortlist for alternate names for the Duke
Read the brilliant article in issue 495 (July 26 – August 22 2019) of Steam Railway regarding the potential alternative names that could have been considered for 71000 Duke of Gloucester. Not only is the article fantastic, running to three full pages, but the support from Steam Railway has already raised an additional £13,500 reducing the shortfall to get the Duke’s overhaul completed. A big thank you to everyone that entered the competition and a massive thank you to everyone that has made an additional contribution to getting the Duke’s overhaul completed. Our target date of September 2020 is looking more and more achievable. Dig deep and help us over the finishing line: Make a donation by clicking here
Please note that the winning name for 71000 will be announced in Steam Railway issue 496 and the name of the winning entrant will be drawn from a hat at the Tyseley Open Weekend on 28/29 September 2019.
