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 - Vacancy

The assembling of the main frames of 72010 Hengist is nearing completion; the Clan Project is now ready to step up a gear and start building the rest of the locomotive.

We are looking to appoint a person who can create and lead a fundraising team. You will join our Council of Management and also work closely with our Engineering Team to ensure that funding is aligned to the current locomotive build plan. This is a voluntary position.

Ideally you should have experience of Corporate Fundraising/Marketing but we are always looking for motivated individuals who can help meet the Project's ultimate goalg. If you feel you could make a great contribution to our Project, please send a resume of your experience and contact details by email to Paul Waldron at for a preliminary discussion on what is involved.
