Welcome to the Web Site for 72010 - Hengist
We're building an improved British Railways Standard Class locomotive using 21st century engineering. Why not join us?
10 of the "Clans" were built in 1951/1952 to provide a powerful locomotive with a wider route availability than the Class 7 Britannias. It was intended to build 15 more but steel shortages and impending dieselisation put a stop to the build. We've taken the name and number of the first proposed engine for our project - Hengist. Have a look at the News section to see how we're getting on.
