Welcome to the Little Loco Group’s website. Based at the Bluebell Railway the Little Loco Group was formally formed in 2017 through the partnership between the Fenchurch Fund and the Wainwright Villas Gang in the effort to fund and undertake the overhaul & restoration of the Bluebell’s smaller engines.

Our current project is to return SECR No.27, also known for a while as Primrose, back into traffic having been in pieces for many years. So far the Fenchurch Fund has raised just over £30,000 of the predicted £150,000 needed to restore 27 back to working order!

Please take the time to enjoy browsing our website and perhaps consider helping us by making a donation today or joining our Rivet Club at only £3 a month! We would also be delighted to hear of any enquiries, or indeed from anybody interested in joining our cause to help preserve the Bluebell’s smaller engines.
