The Heritage Shunters Trust are always looking for new members to join the group.This is the most comprehensive collection of ex British Railway Shunting Locomotives in the Country.

The group needs membership monies to help fund the acquisition of shunters from both home and overseas, and to help overhaul these shunters together with shunters that are already owned by the Heritage Shunters Trust.

Members receive regular issues of 'The Coupling Rod' magazine which has Heritage Shunters Trust past and forthcoming gala news, stock overhaul news, photos, members articles and lots more.
