The Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Trust Ltd
Welcome to the web site of the Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Trust Ltd.
In 1937 the 100th Gresley Pacific was built by the London and North Eastern Railway, and the railway honoured her designer by giving the locomotive his name. This loco, Sir Nigel Gresley, now bearing the British Railways number 60007, was saved from scrapping in 1966 by a small group of determined men who set up the A4 Preservation Society. This became The Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Company Ltd and has recently undergone a further evolution into The Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Trust Ltd. (The name of the A4 Locomotive Society Ltd lives on as the subsidiary company which operates the locomotive for the Trust).
The Trust ~ now a registered charity, Nº1079591 ~ is dedicated to keeping the locomotive running, both on heritage railways and, as much as we can, on her natural environment the main line.
The Site was the proud Winner in Category B of the
