Welcome to The Project Class 22 Society

We are a group of like-minded people from all walks of life, who having seen the successes of new builds of steam locomotives in the UK, had an idea of recreating a diesel locomotive. Established in March 2014, Project 22 is a volunteer group dedicated to building a full size working locomotive. A Pioneering Group, conceived through a Facebook Group page, which has sprung into the railway domain as the first Railway Company that became public at an embryonic stage.

Donate & Invest

We need as many investors as possible to to raise funds for the building of D6358.

As a an investor we will be asking for monthly donations of £10.00 upwards. The funds raised will be used toward planning and construction costs.

On completion, donations made will be transferred into shares in the locomotive.

As an Investor you will be placed in a 6-monthly draw for a railway-related reward. In December 2015 this was a main line cab ride provided by GBRf Ltd
