Let's Get Rolling! - Work to Recommence on 'The Unknown Warrior'

From 1st July, the engineers at the West Shed will be restarting work on 5551 'The Unknown Warrior' after the enforced lockdown. We are appealing for your help in partnership with our friends at the Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust.

With the PRCLT fleet including No. 6233 ‘Duchess of Sutherland’ not earning any hire fees for the foreseeable future, your kind generosity will not only see progress on ‘The Unknown Warrior’, it will crucially help to support the PRCLT in what continues to be difficult times for the preservation movement.


This Bulletin comes hard on the heels of the latest Warrior magazine, whose distribution has taken a little longer than usual because of the coronavirus emergency. (It was mailed to members on June 1st)

On the engineering front, the good news is that West Shed is still expected to re-open on the 1st July.  Our contract is now signed and plans are being made in conjunction with PRCLT to establish task priorities. Funding has been agreed for three months and will continued to be managed carefully on a rolling basis.

The Coronavirus pandemic continues to circumscribe our scope for making progress in most aspects of the Project’s activities, but I’m very pleased to be able to report that we are not yet, at least, at a complete standstill. 


This Bulletin is dominated by how the Coronavirus emergency is impacting on the project.
