The Holden F5 Steam Locomotive Trusts’ income is mostly derived from donations, membership subscriptions  and to a lesser extent merchandise; although the latter does generate an unqualified interest in the Trust and potential income.

In addition to the above the Trust has benefited from legacies in recent times which has enabled the Trust to significantly accelerate the build of GER 789 with the engineering expertise of our Chief Mechanical Engineer Elliot Powick, Tyseley Steam Locomotive Works and their associated contractors.

In December 2014 The Holden F5 Steam Locomotive Trust launched its “Consider a Legacy” campaign to promote other modes of donating to the Trust. Whilst successful, the original YouTube based production was looking dated due to the rapid increase in the rate of the build of GER 789 hence it was decided to approach the producer of “Consider a Legacy” for a much needed updated version. Enter award winning Essex based broadcaster, scriptwriter and author Ray Clark.

Consider a Legacy” not only suggests options on how to donate to the Trust, the production showcases the amount of progress that has been achieved with the build  of GER 789 particularly during the period from November 2020 to November 2021.
