The Llanelli & Mynydd Mawr Railway have preserved the only Class 142 from the former Valley Lines, Arriva Trains Wales and Transport for Wales fleet. We want to repaint the train into authentic Valley Lines livery of green, white and red.
We also wish to honour the memory of the former General Manager of Valley Lines, Tom Clift, who sadly passed away unexpectedly in 2012 at the age of 58. Respected by many in the railway community, Tom was passionate about the lines that our unit served and we feel it fitting to name it in honour of a true railwayman, gentleman and friend of so many.
Our fundraiser will allow us to get the train professionally painted into Valley Lines livery and will also allow us to organise a naming ceremony for such an influential and popular person. In the event of there being any surplus funds from this fundraiser, then we will ensure that they are put towards the ongoing upkeep of 142006.
