Welcome to 50015.org, the internet site 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.

50015 is owned by Bury Valiant Group and is a member of the heritage diesel fleet based at Bury on the East Lancashire Railway

Apologies for any disappointment arising from 50015 not running at the recent Footplate Experience and ELR Summer Diesel Gala.

We discovered Valiant would not take power on the 1st of July and despite our best efforts we were unable to cure the fault in time for the Summer Gala.

50015 will remain stopped whilst this is investigated and battery issues also assessed. Click here to help.
