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.

Members can also volunteer to work on the locomotives at weekend, we provide free PTS (Personal Track Safety) training.


Given that you can match the basic criteria needed we also train people to second man and drive our locos, on running days.
