The LMS Patriot Project has announced that they have launched a new appeal to allow the group to complete major work on the motion for new-build steam locomotive 5551 The Unknown Warrior.
The group are offering those who have yet to qualify for a ticket on the first train to be hauled by 5551 The Unknown Warrior (by making donations worth £1500), the chance to win a ticket.
This new appeal is looking for 500 people to join the 5551 Club by donating £55.51, and once the total is reached, a winner of the ticket will be announced.
For those who already have a ticket, you can still enter, and if you win, you can bring your partner or a friend with you on the historic journey.
However, if you just want to donate £55.51 to the LMS Patriot Project, then you can feel free to do so!
If you would like to join the 5551 Club, then please visit The LMS Patriot Project website by clicking here.
5551 The Unknown Warrior is being built, with more than £3m raised so far, and is currently being completed at The West Shed.
