Pullman Car restoration donation

The Friends Committee have agreed to make a substantial donation of £10,000 from the Friends’ funds to Vintage Trains/Tyseley Locomotive works towards the restoration and return to service of Parlour Car 353, one of the 1960 Mk 1 Pullman Parlour Second Class coaches. The restoration will begin when Tyseley Locomotive Works can reopen after the current lockdown; the donations will be staged as the restoration proceeds to ensure the effective and efficient use of this donation.
