Buy a share of British History;
Keep express steam trains running on the main line
Welcome aboard Vintage Trains, the first new British public main line railway company share issue offered in 100 years.
Secure the future of steam on the main line.
YOU can own a share of a British railway company, preserving experiences, skills and keeping historic steam locomotives running on the main line. This unique opportunity, a first since the Victorian era, will preserve experiences, skills and keep historic locomotives running on main line routes, at speed.
Our initial share offer ended on 31st May, 2018. We surpassed our £800,000 minimum target, enabling us to extend the share offer until 30th April, 2019.
WE WANT YOU TO BECOME AN ACTIVE PART OF THE COMMUNITY BENEFIT SOCIETY AS WELL AS A SHAREHOLDER
We will invite you to the Annual General Meeting, give you free lifetime access to Tyseley Locomotive Works Open Days and the opportunity to:
RIDE ON THREE ‘FIRSTS’ WITH VINTAGE TRAINS
Exclusive and unique opportunity for shareholders:
We are offering a range of shareholder benefits from free entry to our open days for life, through to exclusive private party on board one of our trains (depending on the level of investment of course!). If you tell us what is on your bucket list, we will do our best to fulfil your dreams.
We are also offering tickets on some very exclusive trains; the first Vintage Trains railtours hauled by newly overhauled locomotives out-shopped from our own Tyseley Locomotive Works. Our flagship, no: 7029 'Clun Castle' in February 2019, followed by a second loco later in the year (identity to be confirmed). In 2020 we expect to see 'The Duke of Gloucester' return to the mainline. Secure your seats today.
