Welcome to the 427 Group

This is the homepage of the 427 group. Our aim is to conserve 427, an ex-army diesel shunter built in 1961. The locomotive is in service at the East Kent Railway Trust (EKR), a heritage railway at Shepherdswell near Dover.  Visit the website and arrange a visit at www.eastkentrailway.co.uk.

The Alastair Dussart 427 Fund. 427 is conserved in memory of Alastair Dussart who enabled 427 to stay at the EKR by buying and running her from 2004-2007.
