The NBL Preservation Group was formed in 1990 when a small band of NBL Society members decided to preserve some additional North British steam locomotives outside of the Society framework. As originally constituted, the Group consisted only of a few private individuals who
funded all the projects and was not open to public membership.

However, when it became clear that the NBL Society would eventually become part of the Bucks Railway Centre at Quainton Road, it was agreed to open the Group to Associate Members and to raise funds for future locomotives by share issues.

At the present time, the Preservation Group is actively trying to repatriate Dubs A Class 4-8-2 Tank No. 196 and NBL Class 24 2-8-4 No. 3647 from South Africa and is assisting Glasgow Transport Museum with it’s North British 15F 4-8-2 project. We have also bid to purchase a surplus NBL Class 19D 4-8-2 locomotive from Transnet.

As shown below, our aims have been expanded to provide a forum to promote interest in the North British Locomotive Company and to catalogue and illustrate what has been preserved in the UK. Membership is open to all and an Application Form appears elsewhere on this website. We do hope that you decide to join us.
