I would just like to say a personal thank you to every one who donated to the crowdfunder appeal and achieving the target needed to transport the other APT power car back from Coventry. Many thanks all. Brian Porter ... See MoreSee Less

We’ve just had confirmation from the gang over on the APT P UK Class 370. They have been working hard campaigning to get money together to move the APT Power Car from the closed Coventry Railway Museum to Crewe Heritage Centre.
They have confirmed that tonight the Crowdfunder page has hit its target.
Thankyou to every single person who has dontated towards the campaign and a huge thankyou to Railcam for their continued Support.
The fundraiser is still open and donations are still welcomed as they will go towards the restoration of the vehicle.

In your Crewe North Junction signal box entrance area, you had very large photocopies of old maps. They looked very interesting with lots of details. But at about £6 for a large sheet of paper they were too expensive for me. I think you could make some extra money for your cause if you offered them for a more affordable price. Especially if you found someone who could copy them for less. I think offering them in the various local history groups would be popular. You don't need to supply them in tubes. ... See MoreSee Less

Just found these photos that Hughie Williams gave me. He took these when they moved the APT from its original position to where it is now. As can be seen the other power car, the one we're getting back, is in the consist. It was taken out while doing the move as there wasn't enough room to put it in. A great bit of engineering.

Excellent. My dad was passed out to drive the APT and although it never got into full service I'm very proud he was 'one of the few' so to speak.
I remember this well, I have some photos of this move as well Hughie was a close family friend.

I've come with an idea. For all those who have donated £10 and over and those who will donate £10 + i will send a CD which contains these original manuals, scanned and put onto CD. Now bear in mind these are scanned from original documents so will show signs of that. All the people who have donated please send me your address, i already have your names on the crowd funder page. Just a little incentive and thankyou for all donations. ... See MoreSee Less

Are you only open on Saturdays? My son and I moved away from Crewe 2 years ago but when down visiting friends last weekend, we decided to come for a visit on the Sunday.
My son is now 5 and was always our favourite day out when he was a toddler (most weekends, followed by lunch at Tesco, simple pleasures!). We even spent our last weekend in Crewe visiting the heritage centre before moving away!
We were so sad and disappointed to find it all closed up 😥 ... See MoreSee Less
We are only open from Easter - the end of September. I’m sorry you visited us out of season.

Thankyou Ian, we appreciate it.
Chipped in, shared on farcebook and trying to get it sent round the office of a large urban railway operator... We can do it!
Is there any chance of an APT running again ?
So it's not going to be incorporated into the set at Crewe?
Would that be full set then
Sorry to be ignorant but it just looks like a big green shed?
It's in a lot worst state than that will upload my photos I took from coventry electric company
Are the heritage getting anything else from Coventry
Chipped in and shared.
Where will it go??
I wish everybody at Crewe Heritage Centre all success with the forthcoming move of the APT Power Car and with its subsequent restoration.
Shared and supported
Be great if they got it running again on main line
Would be nice to see tha APT back together again remember seeing it when it first movie to crew
I’ll throw something in now
