Welcome to the website for Locomotive Owners Group (Scotland) Ltd.
LOG(S) Ltd. was incorporated on
8th May 1973 as a private limited company with the aim of acquiring a
reasonably modern steam locomotive. To that end they acquired
Standard Class 2-6-4T No. 80105 from the famous Barry scrapyard in
Wales in 1973. In the intervening years they have also acquired
two 100hp, vertical-boilered, Sentinel shunting locomotives, “Denis”
The locomotives are all based on the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway,
Bo’ness, West Lothian, EH51 9AQ. They also own some
80437, SK 24895 and BSK 35304; the latter is currently on hire to the
Wensleydale Railway in North Yorkshire.
LOG(S) Ltd. is not the recipient of any external grants or commercial
sponsorship. Funds are raised directly from shareholders or through
retail activities. A shop is based in an ex-Royal Mail van (POT
80437) at Bo’ness whilst a sales stand attends some model railway shows
and local swap meets in Central Scotland.
In the following pages you can
learn some of the history of LOG(S) and its locos; plus the continuing
restoration, overhaul and maintenance of the same.
LOG(S) Ltd is a full member of the Heritage Railway Association (HRA),
Main Line Steam Locomotive Owners Ltd (MSLO) and the BR Standard Steam
Locomotive Owners Group (BRSLOG).
