Welcome to westernchampion.co.uk home of the Diesel Traction Group (DTG) online with details about D1015's mainline railtours plus news, updates and information on all our locomotives.
We are really pleased to announce that the appeal, started little over a month ago, has achieved the required target to ensure that the work on replacing 'B' engine will go ahead asap. As of the 11th February we are closing the appeal, a lot sooner than originally anticipated, and huge thanks are due to all who have been so generous in offering their support to D1015 and demonstrating the high regard in which the locomotive is held. We hope to update you, as work continues on restoring D1015 back to full health, with progress made towards a return to main line running.
Initially work will be on the replacement engine which will allow D1015 to be still available for work, one engine only, on the Severn Valley Railway.Thank you
