No. 2807 Steam locomotive NEEDS YOUR HELP.


2807 FREIGHT LOCOMOTIVE
ASSOCIATION
(Registered Charity no. 1124785)
HEAVY GENERAL OVERHAUL
BOILER SPONSORSHIP APPEAL
               The initial project to restore Great Western Railway 2800 class 2-8-0 steam locomotive No.2807 was completed in June 2010. This followed   29 years of restoration, costing around £500,000, before the locomotive re-entered service on the Gloucestershire-Warwickshire Railway.
No.2807’s boiler ticket expired in 2020, after ten years in heritage line operation, and this then triggered the start of the Heavy General Overhaul of the locomotive.  This overhaul is expected to take at about 2 years, provided the work can be fully funded and there are no unforeseen problems come to light.
The estimated cost of the materials required is around £500,000. Due to  the element of uncertainty involved in these costs, the 2807FLA is continuing to raise funds throughout the overhaul by seeking sponsorship of major items involved. As a registered charity the 2807FLA is also entitled to receive Gift Aid on sponsorship donations, assuming the sponsor is a UK taxpayer.



The most significant work involved in the overhaul is restoration of the boiler. The costs of sponsored items in the accompanying list is based on the actual costs, allowing for inflation, that were incurred at the Llangollen works for the initial restoration of the boiler, together with a forecast of the degree of wear and tear now expected at the end of this boiler ticket.
The existing tyres will require re-profiling and it is assumed that this work will be arranged to coincide with stoppages for boiler repair. The budget estimate for the work is based on the costs of renewal work carried out at Llangollen and Buckfastleigh in 2010.
The following lists the items likely to be required during the Heavy General Overhaul for which sponsorship is sought:

90 crown stays                         100 firebox stays
190 boiler tubes                       28 superheater elements

The brick arch will need rebuilding
The firegrate will require new firebars, and the grate supports may need to be replaced
The ashpan will also require renewal

There are also many more items of lesser expense but just as essential in a major overhaul operation.
Consequently if you are unable at present to commit to sponsoring any of the items listed above, a smaller donation would of course be very welcome.
Crown stays are the long steel stays that hold the firebox crown in place,
Firebox stays support the sides of the firebox from the outer steel shell.

December 2017. All prizes have now been claimed.

After deductions for prizes stationery, administrative and postage costs, a total of £509.32 remained. This was handed to the 2807 FLA Treasurer for the Charities funds. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets.  Please note that all future  “2807 GRAND Draws” will be run by the 2807 FLA our registered charity. I am hoping that this change to the charity will prove fruitful in obtaining prizes/ sponsorships etc, and for the sale of even more draw tickets to a wider area. I am remaining as the Registered Draw Promoter and if anyone has any ideas or suggestions for contacts/sponsors please let me know.
“The next Grand Draw starts in 2019 which is probably 2807`s final full year of steaming before its Heavy General Overhaul has to be done, so it is imperative that we make it a good one” and ensure as much as possible extra funding is available so that the HGO can be fully completed as quickly as possible and 2807 returned to fully operational steaming duties.
