Thomas Overhaul 2013
During the Summer of 2013 Thomas will retire from pulling trains on the NVR and go to hospital for his 10 year overhaul, during this time he will need attention to his boiler, wheels and tanks, he will also receive a new coat of paint. The overhaul for Thomas will take over 12 months to complete and will cost over £150.000. To help with paying for this very important overhaul we have now launched our Thomas overhaul appeal. Thomas will still be in action at the NVR up to the end of June, where he will be shunted in to the shed for his overhaul to begin, whilst Thomas is under overhaul, one of Thomas’s friends will be at the NVR to carry on pulling the important trains on behalf of Thomas.
The large sum of money required to overhaul Thomas will take a tremendous amount of effort on behalf of the Nene Valley Railway. If you would like to help the overhaul, donation forms can be found at all our stations, via this link Donation Form or can be taken over the telephone 01780 784444.
