Welcome to the 82045 Locomotive Fund website. Practical Steam for the 21st Century.

How to Help

In any way you can, please!
Membership of the Trust is only £20-00 per annum and regular contributions by Standing Order are especially welcome.

Membership of The 82045 Steam Locomotive Trust is an annually renewable fee of £20.00. This may also be achieved by monthly standing order once monthly payments received have amounted to £20-00 (i.e. at £10.00 per month it will be achieved upon receipt of the second payment). Maintaining your standing order will ensure continuing year-on-year membership, provided that your annual contribution amounts to at least £20.00. Reminders will be sent out at the appropriate time. Life Membership is available for a one-off payment of £350.00.
Please complete the forms below to help bring the reality of 82045 that bit closer.
