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.

Become a member of the Trust!

Why not become a member of the Transport Trust? Along with other preservation enthusiasts you would be part of an organisation that takes a lively interest in preserving our transport heritage - whether that be a railway locomotive, road going vehicle, ship or boat, or an aeroplane.

We act as the hub of the preservation movement, working closely in an advisory and enabling role with preservation societies.


What do I get as a member?

As a member, you will be invited to take part in the Trust’s programme of visits between Easter and October each year. These unique itineraries allow members to view historic and modern transport sites, many of which are not open to the general public. You will also receive details of Red Wheel unveiling ceremonies and similar events.

All members receive a copy of our excellent magazine, Transport Digest, four times a year.
