If you want to see 76077 steam again – and why wouldn’t you? – there are several ways you can help.
Become an owner!
The best way is to become a shareholder: a part owner of the locomotive. An ownership that will confer privileges and not least the considerable satisfaction of seeing ‘your’ engine’s restoration progress and of course, when it is returned to service, to ride behind it or even enjoy a footplate ride.
Whether you want to buy your special piece of this extraordinary locomotive through instalments of as little as £10 per month or buy a significant shareholding up-front, you can do so now.
And by making an investment, you will bring the day that the engine steams for the first time since 1967 just that little bit closer.

What benefits do I get if I’m a shareholder?
Whatever size your share, you will enjoy benefits that range from a VIP invitation to ride on one of the first trains hauled by 76077 to a full footplate experience. If you can invest £5,000 or more you will become a member of the exclusive ‘77 Club’ which will have a maximum of 77 members who will enjoy a range of privileges. Find out more here!
You can offer practical help
Whether you are a skilled engineer or just want to offer help with the engine’s restoration, marketing, publicity, manning a stand at an event or anything else, then drop us a note and let us know how your would like to assist, email us here
You can sponsor a component!
A full range of components are now available to sponsor – many of them are prominent features including the chimney and buffers. This is a great way to support the project and to be able to see exactly where your donation has been spent.
Most components have long lead times for delivery as they are being made to order. However there are some that are being made in batches so having funds to purchase them, as they become available, makes great sense.
All components sponsored will give you the same value in shares, so this is a great opportunity to become a new shareholder or to increase an existing shareholding. A Roll of Honour listing will be shown on our website and future editions of ‘The Toddington Standard’ acknowledging our sponsors.
A full list of components available to sponsor can be downloaded here. The list will be updated periodically as components are sponsored and new items added.
If you want to sponsor any of these items, please download and complete the Sponsor Application Form here.
If you would like any more details of our component sponsorship program, or want to check component availability, please email Dawn Southwell, our Shareholder Liaison Clerk.
