The trustees of the Gowrie Locomotive Trust are pleased to announce that we have now received quotes for the frames to be cut and have decided to accept the quote to have them laser cut by CTL Seals of Sheffield. The quote is for the cutting of all three sets of frames, (power bogie, trailing bogie and carrier frames plus leading and trailing buffer beams, all stretches and other associated plate work).

In order for us to be able to place this order we now need to raise £4,500, please help us to raise this money by sending us a single donation or by sending us regular contributions. Details of how to make donations to us can be found on the Friends of Gowrie page or by contacting us on our email address gowrielocomotivetrust@gmail.com.

Thank you in anticipation

Despite the difficult conditions created by the global pandemic, we have managed to make quite significant progress this year and have now had around half a ton of castings produced for the loco.
