Welcome to the Clan Project
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.
Latest - Open Day Cancelled
We had planned to hold an open day at CTL Seal on 26th June. Unfortunately, due to the government not releasing the final tier of COVID restrictions, we will be unable to go ahead and the Open Day has been cancelled. The open day was always subject to the relaxation of the COVID restrictions.
