Welcome to our website.

The Holden F5 Steam Locomotive Trust is constructing a replica Great Eastern Railway steam locomotive of a type that could be seen throughout east London and east Anglia until 1957 when the last example was scrapped. Our locomotive GER 789  is one of two unique members of the F5 class that carried an F6 style cab.

“Edwardian Dunmow” featuring GER 789 by Eddy Dodwell is available from the gift shop at Ongar railway station, Essex.

GER 789 is undergoing construction at Tyseley Steam Locomotive Works, Birmingham and when completed will be available for use on any standard gauge preserved railway globally.

GER 789 components manufactured to date include the cylinder block, star stay, tank supports, frame plates, buffer beams, bunker, chimney, smoke box,  motion bracket and a collection of sundry items. The design of the Stephenson’s valve gear and frame assembly has been progressed near to completion.  However to further progress the build we urgently need to raise more funds.
