Shares can be purchased in the Bury Steam locomotive Co. Limited., which owns the Standard 4 80097 and the Ivatt 46428 locos.  This will support us by helping to fund the restoration of the Ivatt  and  the operating maintenance costs of 80097. Our current priority is to pay off the substantial loan that we took out to rebuild the boiler on 80097 and enable her restoration to be completed.

Shares are £1 each and a minimum holding of 50 shares is required.

To request a Shares application form please email shares@burystandard4group.org.uk or visit the Group's fund raising shop coach, at the end of platform 2 at the East Lancashire Railway's Bury, (Bolton Street) station. Forms are available there and payment can be made by cheque or cash.


If you would like to volunteer to help with the restoration of our engines and rolling stock in our workshop, then you also need to become a member of The East Lancashire Railway Preservation Society (ELRPS). (This is to comply with Health & Safety Requirements).
