About our Associate

Stephenson Locomotive Society

The Stephenson Locomotive Society was founded in 1909 and is the leading organisation for the study of railways and railway locomotion. Aside from owning an extensive library, photographic and drawings collections and having it's own archive material in museums, it also publishes books and of course the Stephenson Locomotive Society Journal.

The Society organises local meetings and events around the country: there are currently 12 regular centres from Scotland to the South of England and the SLS also has a Members Forum section on their website for exchange of information and comments.

In 1927 the Society purchased L.B.S.C.R. 0-4-2 Gladstone and thus became the first private locomotive preservation group. Subsequently Gladstone became part of the national collection at the National Railway Museum in York. For a history of Gladstone in preservation click LB&SC "Gladstone"No. 214

The Society's unique collection of locomotive works plates and nameplates are on display to the public at various museums around the country.
