Company Details

The Class G5 Locomotive Company Ltd is VAT registered Company and shareholders are eligible for tax relief on their investment under the Government's Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS); the current rate of tax relief is 30%.

Shares are available at a minimum of £100. The directors are elected at the Company's AGM and must hold more than £50,000.00 of shares to be eligable for election.

When complete, and run-in, the locomotive will be made available for hire to the Heritage Railway sector. As mentioned on our home page, there is a need for a modern, small to medium sized steam locomotive for the growing heritage railway sector. We have already had enquiries from several heritage railways about the availability of the engine so we feel confident that, when completed and operational, the locomotive will be able to earn sufficient to cover future maintenance costs and provide a return on shareholder investment.

If you would like further details, or a shareholder prospectus, please contact either our Chairman, Mike Wood or Company Secretary, Tim Taylor whose details are on the contacts page. Otherwise email
