The West Shed is home to The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust – a Charity formed in 1993 by a group of railway enthusiasts who had already saved and restored several steam locomotives. Since then, the Trust has restored more locomotives and railway carriages, and developed a professional base – the West Shed – located at the Midland Railway-Butterley.

You can help us to look after our historic steam locomotives and railway carriages by making a donation. Your support will also help us to keep the West Shed Museum open for visitors to enjoy for years to come. As a Registered Charity we are grateful for every penny received!
