The LMS-Patriot Company, the charitable Project that is building the new Royal British Legion Endorsed National Memorial Engine ‘The Unknown Warrior', is pleased to announce its intention to build a new Fowler 2-6-4T once 45551 'The Unknown Warrior' is up and running.
The new tank engine will feature a parallel boiler and will be numbered 42424. Fundraising will not begin until 'The Unknown Warrior' is completed.
Building the new national memorial engine from scratch can easily be described as hard as running a marathon but that's what Andrew Laws, Marketing & Publicity Director for The LMS-Patriot Project is attempting to do. It will be Andrew's first marathon, and Hamburg is a great flat course ideal for his first run over 26.2 miles. Andrew had been previously working in Hamburg so chose the Hamburg Marathon as he had trained on part of the city centre course.
The LMS-Patriot Project, the charitable Project that is building the new Royal British Legion Endorsed National Memorial Engine ‘The Unknown Warrior', is pleased to announce that it has received a £1350 donation from Privateer Beers. The donation has funded a new axle for one of the bogie wheelsets at the front of the 4-6-0 locomotive.
The LMS-Patriot Company, the charitable project which is building a new steam memorial engine ‘The Unknown Warrior’ is delighted to announce that one million pounds has been raised since the Project was launched in April 2008. The announcement was made at the Project’s AGM on 15th November at Crewe Heritage Centre.
