Membership of the Thompson B1 Locomotive Trust is available at the following rates:

  • Annual (individual) – £10

Members receive regular editions of the ‘B1 News’ as well as advanced notice of B1-related events, railtours, appearances etc. Our AGM is usually held around October or November.

You can join or renew your membership easily in two ways:

  • By paying through Paypal or by credit/debit card – simply fill in the ‘Join / Renew Online’ form further down this page, after which click the ‘Join / Renew’ button – you will then be taken to a payment page where membership options can be selected and payment can be made (note, there is no need to have a Paypal account for this).
  • Print the paper B1 membership form (click on link below) and post it with a cheque for the appropriate subscription to the address given on the form. Cheques should be made payable to ‘TBLT’.

Shares are also available in multiples of £10 (minimum purchase £100) and you can become a part owner in the locomotive by either making an application in full, or making regular monthly standing order payments from your Bank or Building Society. If you require more details of how to become a shareholder in the locomotive then please tick the box on the ‘Join / Renew  Online’ or the paper membership form.

Anyone who makes a standing order payment of at least £10 per month receives free membership of the Trust throughout the period of the standing order. If you wish to set up a standing order then please select the zero value ‘Set up a standing order’ option from the drop-down list on the membership payment page, or if you are joining by using the paper B1 membership form then please tick the relevant box indicating that you wish to set up a standing order. We will then make contact with you to set up the standing order.

If you don’t want to join the group, any financial contributions to support our work would still be very much appreciated – please visit out Donate page.
