Membership & Volunteering

Are you thinking about becoming a member of The Class 40 Preservation Society or wanting to join our dedicated Volunteering team who maintain and look after our three locomotives, as well as assisting with the Sales and Fundraising during events throughout the year? Then look no further, you are looking in the right place…

We have a strong membership of 540 that continue to support the society’s goal of the continuous preservation of three English Electric Type 4 Locomotives, Ex BR Class 40.

40106, 40135 and 40145 are all based at The ELR, Bury and form part of a strong fleet of diesel traction.

If you wish to join the CFPS and be part of a unique membership, then please click here for further details. If you wish to join our team of volunteers ‘The Oily Rags’ to get stuck in with the maintenance and general upkeep of our locomotives or if you wish to assist with the Sales and Fundraising, then please click here for further details.

Thanks for looking and hopefully you will decide to join us and become part of a friendly society…
