We have a dedicated band of Engineering Support Volunteers that maintain our locomotives. No previous experience or skills are required to help the Society in this way as full training and guidance will be given.

The Engineering Support Team typically meet every Saturday at the East Lancashire Railway (ELR). The Team’s efforts are mostly concentrated on repairs and running maintenance on our locos under the guidance of our Head of Engineering and Loco Manager’s.

For insurance purposes you will need to be a working member of the ELR. To become a working a member on the ELR you first need to become a member then undertake a half-day basic safety training course and a medical. We are keen to welcome and increase our numbers in the Engineering Team. If this area is of interest, please complete and submit the registration form below to register your interest.
