Engineering the future of steam in Sheffield

Precision engineered by CTL Seal in Sheffield, we're    re-creating a British Railways Standard 'Clan' Class Steam locomotive using 21st century engineering. Our aim is to re-create the original engine, but make significant improvements to it's overall performance. Our new locomotive will be:

> Cleaner & Greener

> More Powerful

> Greater efficiency

We're building a much 'greener & cleaner' locomotive

The project is building a real head of steam! Using the expert engineers we have working on the Steam locomotive, we're currently underway with the frame assembly, main cylinders and front bogie.

New Members & Next Open Day

 

We're always looking for new members to join the Hengist Club. Your support is most welcome and needed. We've also got some high profile visits over the coming months, including the Master Cutler and the Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, so hopefully that will generate some great publicity for the Loco.

Our next Open Day is scheduled for Saturday April 13th, 10am. We look forward to seeing you all there!
