Fund the technical inspection of the steam locomotive 52 4867!

Frankfurt, Germany

Our locomotive needs to undergo a mandatory inspection every 8 years with costs rising up to half a million euro. Something the train club is not able to finance on its own. Therefore, we would kindly ask you to help us fund the inspection.

About this project

Our 77 year old class 52 steam locomotive is the Backbone of our historical train club in Frankfurt. We use it all throughout the year with many tourist and locals enjoying the train rides to various festivals, events, Christmas markets and other destinations. The locomotive is maintained in working condition by our club members on a voluntary basis and in their free time. Every cent earned on the rides is spent so that future generations can experience a working steam train firsthand. 

Unfortunately, our locomotive needs to undergo a mandatory inspection every 8 years with costs rising up to half a million euro. Something the train club is not able to finance on its own. Therefore, we would kindly ask you to help us fund the inspection. We think that it is in the interest of all people that the locomotive is not gathering dust in a lifeless museum or rotting away on a sidetrack like many before. Help us to preserve history in working condition!
