East Lancashire Railway Appeals

Posted on


East Lancashire Railway is a heritage railway dedicated to the preservation of steam and diesel locomotives. I was recently commissioned to produce artists impressions for two fundraising appeals:

Bolton Street Canopy Appeal is raising funds to erect a canopy on platform 2 Bolton Street Station in Bury. The canopy will be situated along the entire length of the Trackside bar and will have a transparent covering so that visitors to the station and patrons of the bar can enjoy spending time on the platform whatever the weather is doing. 

Construction work is now underway and should be completed in time for the next Raise the Roof event in July. Raise the Roof is a weekend long music event that features many local and very talented rock bands. This extremely popular event is now in its fourth year, Tickets will be on sale with the next few this space for updates.


80097 is a class 4 steam locomotive that is currently being restored to its former glory. You can keep informed of the progress here.
