North Eastern Locomotive Preservation GroupNELPG is a charity run by volunteers. Members are a mixture of old and young who are skilled and unskilled enthusiasts. Some are retired whilst others seek a hobby totally different from their daily routine. Having such a hobby is the envy of many who see NELPG's locomotives operating either on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway or elsewhere in the country. There is nothing more pleasing than seeing the K1 blasting along the West Highland line or the J27 and Q6 powering their way up the steep gradients on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and being able to say "I helped to make that possible". You could help us maintain these majestic sights and sounds by becoming a member. NELPG publishes its own bi-monthly newsletter 'NELPG NEWS' and has monthly evening meetings between September and May in the Darlington Club and Institute. For those who like to get their hands dirty there are working parties at Grosmont on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, and at Hopetown Carriage Works, Darlington on Monday and Thursday evenings. Also there are opportunities for working members to become members of the main line support crews when 62005 works trains on Network Rail metals.
