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”.


 
Current status report
22 June 2016

The issue reported late on the evening of Friday 17th June was a bearing on the front bogie running hot, and was the reason that, sadly, 6201 couldn’t take the PMR Tours charter to York and Scarborough as planned. The bearing problem is now being dealt with by the engineering team, and we hope to have some positive news again shortly following repair. Contributions towards the expected cost of repairs are always very welcome.
 
IMPORTANT NEWS UPDATE
18 June 2016

We're very sorry to report that although testing on Thursday was a success, after arriving at Derby late on Friday 17th June, 6201 is reported as failed and therefore won't be hauling the PMR Tours charter to York and Scarborough as planned. We're very sorry to make this announcement at such short notice. Further news will be released when more information is available.
