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

Following problems in July, we found 50015 had blown a KV10 control board. This has since been swapped out with a spare and repaired. A recent test run with D335 proved successful!.

Valiant will attend the NYMR Diesel Gala 12-14th September and take part in the ELR Autumn Diesel Gala.
