Valiant Running Dates
To Be Confirmed - See NEWS below
East Lancashire Railway
Unfortunately Valiant is unable to run at the ELR Summer Diesel Gala but we hope some of you will be there, the 50015 sales stand will be open for business!
Work is progressing well upgrading the oil priming system, removing original 1" pipework and replacing with new 1½" pipework. The oil sump has also been extensively cleaned with various artifacts uncovered including lumps of failed piston from past BR episodes as is often standard! More soon...

Welcome to 50015.org, the website for preserved English Electric Class 50, 50015 'Valiant'. We aim to gather information and resources here including updates on ongoing maintenance, details of rostered workings and photographs from both past and present.
Although a regular and reliable performer, Valiant requires constant attention both mechanical and cosmetic. If you would like to get involved as a volunteer or wish to make a donation, please click here for more details.
Ok, so everyone is looking for donations and support, but it's not all about you sending us your hard earned!
One great way of supporting Valiant is to come along and have a ride behind her on a running day or special event. You get to enjoy a ride behind a 50 and both the loco and railway earn some money, everybody wins!
Getting involved as a volunteer at Bury Diesel Group is another way of helping out. More details can be found at the ELR diesel Group website.
If you would like to make a donation we would love to hear from you. Please see the panel opposite for details.Thank you!
