June Update - Progress Report on 5551

For those who were fortunate enough to see 'The Unknown Warrior' during the week of the Armistice commemorations last year, a cursory glance at 5551 will suggest that things have not progressed. Nothing could be further from the truth as you will read in the following update of work currently in progress.

News updates - May 2019

Contractor decision

The decision to appoint a contractor for the final assembly has been narrowed down to two. Several meetings have taken place with another being unavoidably delayed until 6th June. We are hopeful that the outcome will be made known to you by the end of June and we will let Members know by email or letter depending on your contact preference.

February Update

Members will currently be receiving the latest issue of our newsletter The Warrior . This shows that an encouraging amount of work has been possible at Crewe Heritage Centre in the last months, thanks to our volunteers. Meanwhile the first quote to complete the locomotive has now been received and two more are expected shortly.  All being well, we hope to decide where the final build will go (including consideration of completing it ourselves) at the next Board meeting , which is at the end of April.
