Welcome to The AC Locomotive Group's website.

We are the UK's only dedicated AC electric locomotive preservation society. We formed in 1996 and currently have eight AC locomotives in our care, including Britain's oldest surviving AC loco, dating from 1960, through to the unique 1986 prototype Class 89.

Please take a look around our website; you can read about all our locomotives and our restoration activities on them to date. If you're a fan of AC traction why not join up as a member and help to support the ongoing preservation of these fine machines?

If you're interested in helping with hands-on restoration of the fleet, you are more than welcome to join us and get dirty! You don't need to have any experience to get involved and make a difference; anyone with enthusiasm for electric traction will find a warm welcome.

Looking for a change from steam and diesel? The answer is electric! Enjoy your visit.
