31414 Joins the fleet

31414 has become the latest member of the class to come under the wing of A1A Locomotives Ltd.

The acquisition was the result of a number of our shareholders coming together independently to raise sufficient funds to buy and transport 31414 from the owners at Ecclesbourne Valley Railway . Thanks to the generosity of those shareholders, 31414 is now wholly owned by A1A Locomotives Ltd and brings the fleet up to 5 locomotives.

Obviously this is a significant development and the full story, thinking behind the purchase and details of how she was acquired will be communicated to shareholders in the next newsletter (which is imminent).
