In addition to Chris Green and the Network SouthEast Railway Society, other groups supporting the Autumn Diesel Gala with their stands are as follows:
Class 22 Newbuild Project
This is the project society’s stand, fundraising raising money for the new build class 22, with society membership forms available, and merchandise include clothing, railway stickers, bags, phone cases etc.
Our aim is to build a class 22, having already locating a number of very important components. All the drawings are available, and the first batch are on order.
The group took off on Facebook and within 48 hours we had over 200 members; we now have nearly 900 with a membership of approximately 50 at the current time.
We sell items to raise money for the society for the build. It is not for profit, and we are looking at getting charitable status. We have our own website at www.class22newbuild.co.uk, which is live, but still being added to.
We pride ourselves on providing high quality items to locomotive groups and preserved railways
