A Unique Challenge

With four unique, sole-surviving first-generation "roarers" and one third-generation loco to take care of we need your support to ensure these historic designs are preserved for future generations to marvel at.

We're facing the unique challenge of restoring an early 25kV AC electric locomotive back to working order, but the more help we receive, the faster it will happen. Will you take the challenge?

A Unique Opportunity

There is always a warm welcome for new members, whether you prefer to get your hands dirty or be a silent supporter. Your support really does count towards the future of these unique machines.

When you join you will be able to access our newsletter ACLines which contains details of restoration progress, news, main-line happenings and a variety of other articles.

You will also be welcome to get your hands dirty at our regular Working Weekends, actively helping to restore our AC electric locos - not something you can do elsewhere just now! Whether or not you know your ABCB from your Earthing Switch, we can find jobs suitable for most ranges of experience and ability.
