RRRG welcomes new members and supporters. They are the lifeblood of our project, whether by volunteering and getting your hands dirty or helping to finance what is a very expensive project. Some of the questions we often get asked is "When will 50030 be ready?" and "Why is it taking so long?" Take a look around our picture gallery showing the restoration work we're doing. Read our reports for Peak Rail's house magazine The Peak Express on our progress. It's a very thorough job and that's why it's taking so long! We intend 50030 to be a brand new locomotive inside with a very long and secure future ahead of it in preservation. Partly this is through choice and partly it's the situation we found ourselves in given the neglect the locomotives suffered since withdrawal from BR. The date that 50030 re-enters service will depend on a number of factors such as available finance and volunteers, however we have no intention of quitting the project.
