We need cotton and towelling clothing – preferably with zips and buttons removed – to keep our locomotives in the gleaming style to which they are accustomed.
We get through a huge amount of old clothing at Boston Lodge and Dinas keeping our locomotives in top condition. You can help our engines stay in pristine condition by donating unwanted cotton and towelling items at any F&WHR ticket office.
Rags are used up to three times before they are relegated to fire lighting duties, so this is recycling at its best.
Rest assured that no one will judge you on your fashion sense…
