Clan Line – Securing the Past for the Future!


For years now, 35028 Clan Line has been widely considered to be one of the finest and most well maintained steam locomotives on the main line. To keep it on the main line, the locomotive’s owners, the Merchant Navy Locomotive Preservation Society, are on the look out for the next volunteers to maintain the locomotive.

On the 3rd November 2013, UK Heritage Hub’s roving reporter, James Corben, was invited to visit Stewarts Lane along with the Youth Railway Enthusiast Association to have a look behind the scenes at 35028, and to meet some of the current volunteers who were preparing the locomotive for it’s next main line excursion.
