1466 Restoration Appeal

1466 Restoration Appeal

Help raise £60,000 to ensure Didcot Railway Centre’s first locomotive is back in action for our 60th Anniversary!

Please help ensure this iconic and historic locomotive can delight generations of future visitors to Didcot.

Further information on the appeal is available here.

Any contribution will help make a difference, but you might like to link your gift to a significant number in 1466’s history:

Give £60 to have 1466 running for our 60th Anniversary
£175.92 - equal to £14.66 a month for year to have 1466 running in a year
£1131 - the original 1961 estimate to save a 14XX
£2,247 – the sum it cost the Great Western Railway to build 1466 when new in 1936
£4,866 – the locomotive’s identity until renumbered in 1946

Would you like to Gift Aid your purchase?
I would like the Great Western Society to reclaim the tax on this and any other eligible donations or membership subscriptions that I may make in the future until further notice. I understand that I need to pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all my donations to charity, otherwise it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

If your tax circumstances change, or if you do not wish Gift Aid to apply to any specific donations, please contact us on 01235 817200 or email
