The 75069 Fund
The 75069 Fund owns BR Standard 4MT No 75069.
Railway Herald magazine reported on 7 November 2011 that the Fund is one of three similar funds operating on the SVRSevern Valley Railway. An initial group of 18 members formed The Ivatt Class 4 Group to purchase LMS Ivatt Class 4 43106, a larger group formed The Passenger Tank Fund to purchase BR Riddles 4MT 80079, before a still larger group formed The 75069 Fund. It reported a special meeting of The Passenger Tank Fund had been arranged for 30 October 2011 to discuss and vote on a proposed sale of the locomotive to Mr Jeremy Hosking with a view to the sale proceeds being applied to The 75069 Fund. No such sale took place.
