Welcome to the 6201 Princess Elizabeth Locomotive Society

The Princess Elizabeth Locomotive Society is the proud custodian of the only surviving prototype Stanier 4-6-2 - Princess Royal Class No 6201 “Princess Elizabeth”.

The locomotive is now undergoing its planned overhaul at Tyseley Locomotive Works in Birmingham and, for the first time since it was sold to the Society by British Railways, is in covered accommodation in Tyseley’s major new building. This facility will not only vastly improve the working environment for those working on the engine, it also ensures that its future preservation is much easier.
