The Train from Spain Project

Naming competition – online form

Would you like to help to decide an instrumental part of the locomotive's future?

The questions everyone is asking are "What will it be called?" and "What colour will it be?" - and we want your help to choose!

For a small £4 donation you are invited to suggest a name and colour scheme for the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway Preservation Society's latest addition, 4-6-2 steam locomotive No.8457 (the Train From Spain!).

Will its name be a local choice, or something reflecting its German build or its career in Spain?

We have launched our online form here:
