Welcome to the Web Site for 72010 - Hengist

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 The 2022 AGM will be held at CTL Seal, Sheffield on 19 November at 1400.

All members are invited to the 2022 Annual General Meeting. You should have received an AGM booklet will full details. If you have not, please contact us using the "Contact Us" page.
