The Transport Trust is the only national charity established to promote and encourage the preservation and restoration of Britain's unique transport heritage in all its forms - road, rail, wings and water.

Our Mission

Britain’s place in the history and development of transport is demonstrably second to none. It is an achievement of which the Trust, and the nation, are justifiably proud. This country's growth and prosperity has been inextricably linked with the movement of people and cargo. We take it as our mission to ensure the story of our heritage does not slip into oblivion.


Restore & Preserve

The Transport Trust aims, for the benefit of the nation as a whole, to promote and encourage the permanent preservation of transport items of historical or technical interest.


Document & Record

The Trust promotes the preservation of documents, drawings, pictures, books and artifacts of significance. Where items or collections are at risk for want of a home, the Trust is happy to advise.
