We welcome donations by cheque. If you would prefer to donate this way, please make your cheque payable to ‘The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust’ and post it to:

The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust – The West Shed,

Please consider remembering The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust in your will. If you would like to discuss this, please get in touch.

The West Shed is home to The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust – a Charity formed in 1993 by a group of railway enthusiasts who had already saved and restored several steam locomotives. Since then, the Trust has acquired and restored more locomotives and railway carriages, and developed a professional base – the West Shed – located at the Midland Railway-Butterley.
