Things you can do
Come and see
Hear the story of how Bridgnorth contributed to the birth of mechanised transport. Find out what an extraordinary character Richard Trevithick was, and how good an engineer. Because Catch Me Who Can is so simple, the young and the non-technical can easily understand how it works.
The next occasion we intend to have Catch Me Who Can in steam is normally shown on the News page. At present we are working to try to get the engine finished. In the meantime, if you want to see the work we are doing, email us at email@example.com and we may be able to arrange a visit.
We have a sales stand at the more popular SVR events, where we are pleased to be given the opportunity to talk, preferably at length, about our project. Our stand is usually located at Bridgnorth station.
Give practical help
If you have any relevant skills to offer, we would like to hear from you. As well as engineering skills, we are particularly in need of people with experience of publicity, fund raising, and event organisation.
Make a donation
While we have sufficient funds to complete the engine using volunteer labour, this will take time. We would like to be able to contract out some of the remaining work for a final push to have the engine finished sooner. We face ongoing running and maintenance costs, not the least of which is insurance. We need to put on and publicise events so that as many people as possible can can enjoy the sight, sound, and smell of our unique little locomotive. This will involve the cost of transporting the engine to events away from Bridgnorth. To make up a proper train, we would like Catch Me Who Can to have its own passenger vehicle to pull.
We are a registered charity run entirely by unpaid volunteers.
We are grateful for any contribution to this project, however small, and we have tried to make online donations as easy as possible by offering the PayPal Donate button below.
