Jinty Appeal

Securing the Future of Steam on the Spa Valley Railway!

‘Jinty’ 47493 is the signature locomotive of the Spa Valley Railway. It was the first ex-mainline steam engine to be based on the railway and is perfectly suited for our operation, hauling many trains between 2004 and 2014. We now have the chance to make it one of our ‘Crown Jewels’ by offering it a permanent home, but we need YOUR HELP! 

The locomotive has recently been offered to the railway and we have reached an agreement to purchase it. Our target for this appeal is to raise £130,000 towards purchasing 47493 and returning it to operation. We have secured a financial commitment to match fund any donation pound-for-pound up to a total of £50,000, if received before June 30th 2020. 

Donations can either be individual donations or through a monthly covenant scheme. However we want to encourage the monthly covenants to guarantee regular income. Please encourage interested individuals to complete an Expression of Interest form or send an email to
