55019 main line appeal - OTMR

In January we announced our intention to return 55019 'Royal Highland Fusilier' to the main line and were seeking to raise a large amount of money in order to achieve that goal.

We now find ourselves in the position to be able to break down the initial sum into amounts relating to specific pieces of work. Therefore, our initial target is to raise £18,000 so that 55019 can be fitted with OTMR, without which it would not be allowed on the national network. The more observant of you will have noticed that the image on our homepage at https://www.thedps.co.uk/ has been updated to reflect this, and also includes some details of what OTMR is and why it is needed.
