About us

No. 6024 “King Edward I” is maintained and operated by the 6024 Preservation Society Limited (an exempt charity) on behalf of the Royal Scot Locomotive and General Trust. Running and maintaining such a prestigious locomotive is a time consuming and expensive business. The Society’s volunteers spend much time and money in keeping her in tip-top condition.

The Society is always keen to welcome new members willing to support and contribute towards ensuring the engine’s future. There are also opportunities for active involvement in engineering, maintenance and administration.
