The National Traction Engine Trust

The original plan to relocate the business of Israel Newton Ltd to a new site in Bradford with the boiler and engineering training unit to run alongside failed for the reasons explained in 'Steaming'.

Negotiations are at an early stage and there are hopes that a BESTT training facility can be established. Everyone involved with heritage steam whether on the road or on rails, has an interest in promoting and maintaining boiler making skills.
