Funding Appeals

As the project progresses then, there will be a need to boost our income to cover the costs. To do this we will be following the lead of other New Build Schemes, this will include a dedicated appeal for the larger components, or for the smaller items we will offer sponsorship. 

Ben Bogie Appeal

Our first appeal was launched at the SRPS Steam Gala, we intend to start acquiring the components needed to construct the front bogie. We have a designer currently working on the frame plates, once the design has been completed and checked by an independent Engineering consultant; then the order will be placed with a supplier. To allow us to do this and to further the required design work, we are asking for an initial £10,000 to kick start the build. If you want to become part of this amazing project then the appeal leaflet can be downloaded.


New Build Locomotive Scotland began with the simple realisation; that among all the new builds currently being undertaken across the preservation scene, none of them represent the majesty that was a Scottish Pre-grouping locomotive.

With this in mind, NBLS aims to fill this gap in the preservation world by building a new locomotive in Scotland, by Scotland, for Scotland. It is our intention to build a Ben Class, namely Ben Alder (Dubs & Co.3685 build in 1898).

New Build Locomotive Scotland- registered charity number is SC049595.
