About the Organisation:
The General Steam Navigation Locomotive Restoration Society are the proud custodians of the Southern Railway Bulleid Merchant Navy class locomotive 21c11 / 35011 General Steam Navigation, which currently resides at the Swindon & Cricklade Railway in beautiful Wiltshire, England.
The Society aims to restore the Merchant Navy locomotive 21c11 / 35011 to its original condition, complete with air smoothed casing and Bulleid’s unique chain driven valve gear. Retro-converting a Merchant Navy has long been debated since the days of Barry Scrap Yard with 11 of the 30 members of the class surviving the cutter’s torch. General Steam Navigation went to Barry in June 1966 with most of its running gear missing and, critically, no crank axle. This has put GSN in a rather unique position compared to its fellow Merchant Navies, as the costs of restoring it to either rebuilt or original condition are fairly similar. We are recreating the missing link in Southern Railway preservation.

About the Role:
The Society is growing and evolving, having recently recruited a Chief Mechanical Engineer to oversee the long-term restoration project, and a qualified Management Accountant as Treasurer to oversee the finances of the project. We have also worked collaboratively with several university programmes in the UK during the past year, and have gained increased membership through social media events and our feature debut through a Railway Mania podcast.
We seek to recruit a volunteer Director of Development and Campaigns to lead the development and fundraising efforts on behalf of the Society.
