Eurostar rescue locomotive 73 130

Hello! We are a group of dedicated railway people that have recently got together to save the unique locomotive 73 130.
We managed to raise enough money to purchase the locomotive and transport it to its new home at the Llanelli and Mynydd Mawr Railway but need further support to carry out essential maintenance and repairs on it.
The locomotive is unique as it is the only remaining locomotive carrying the Eurostar adapter couplers that were provided to enable it to rescue failed Eurostar trains during the early years of its operation.
You can make regular donations via DD (please ask) or a one-off donation via this page.
All monies raised will go to restoring the locomotive, enabling people to understand the part it played in the pioneering days of direct international train travel to and from the UK.
Thank you for your donation!
