West Coast Railways
6 April 2016

We are very pleased to hear that the situation with West Coast Railways has now been resolved. As a limited company we have supported West Coast Railways throughout the ORR investigation, along with steam locomotive owners who are members of the Mainline Steam Locomotive Operators Limited (MSLOL). Tyseley Locomotive Works continue to finish off the outstanding jobs in preparation for the VAB tests and loaded test run, and of course we’re working closely with Tyseley Locomotive Works and West Coast Railways to get Lizzie back to working on the mainline ASAP.

As the locomotive is currently not in traffic, we have developed the Gallery section on this website to include video clips of 6201 to remind us all of its “Elegance in Action”.
