“Restoring our past,
enriching our future”


About the LCLT

The Locomotive Conservation and Learning Trust was formed in 2009 to ensure a sustainable future for precious railway artefacts, while at the same time facilitating learning about their history and supporting traditional skills.

The first artefacts placed into LCLT’s care, by Beamish, The North of England Open Air Museum, are former North Eastern Railway ‘J21’ 0-6-0 locomotive No. 65033 and NER bogie tools van No. 5523.

The Trust is now actively fundraising towards its work (click here to find out more), which is to include restoration of No. 65033 to working order, and restoration and conversion of the van to create a mobile exhibition and educational space.
