THE 'CLAN' PROJECT is a Volunteer led Charitable Organisation and Limited Company, building a brand new B.R. Class 6MT 'Clan' Pacific Steam Locomotive, for the 21st Century railway, utilising the original B.R. design drawings and incorporating many improvements necessary for the modern railway in addition to those planned in the original Lot 242 design. The locomotive will be a true 'series production' machine, albeit much improved, the 11th of the class, and will take the next number and name in the original Crewe Works itinerary: 72010 'HENGIST'.
