During 2014, Wulfrun Consulting sponsored the renumbering and renaming of 50031 'Hood' which took on the identity of long since withdrawn classmate; 50011 'Centurion'. Read more.
Profits made from the cost of the sponsorship have been used to help pay bills for repairs to the Fifty Fund's locomotives.
On Saturday 15th November 2014, following The Fifty Fund Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Kidderminster Railway Museum, a presentation took place at the nearby Severn Valley Railway Diesel Depot. Joseph Burr, Chairman and Sales Officer of The Fifty Fund presented Daniel Cartwright of Wulfrun Consulting with the replica 'Centurion' nameplate which had been carried by 50031.
On the day of the AGM, 50031 was actually at Eastleigh Works (ZG) for an overhaul which will include repairs to the Electric Train Heat (ETH) generator, auxiliary generator, bodyside repairs and a full repaint. Pictures were therefore taken in front of 50049 'Defiance'.
If you would like to support The Fifty Fund then why not purchase Christmas Cards or The BR Blue Era 2015 Calendar? All the profit from your purchases will go directly to supporting the Fund's locomotives; 50031 'Hood', 50035 'Ark Royal', 50044 'Exeter' and 50049 'Defiance'. Thank you for your support!
