About the Society

No 6024 “King Edward I” is maintained and operated by the 6024 Preservation Society Ltd on behalf of the Royal Scot Locomotive and General Trust. The 6024 Preservation Society Ltd is a Community Benefit Society and Exempt Charity, no 21746R. 

Running and maintaining such a prestigious locomotive is a rewarding commitment and the Society’s members and volunteers invest themselves fully in keeping her in pristine condition. Our members also have the opportunity to take active roles in areas such as engineering, maintenance and administration.

The Preservation Society is always keen to welcome new members aboard and if you are interested in ensuring the engine’s future, you are invited to become a member of Club 60-TwentyFour. There are benefits to being a member, details of which you can find clicking below, or if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at contact@6024.com
