Welcome to the S.E.L.G. website

Built up over many years (14+ looking at the old files) , there is a wealth of information here, contained within the menu bar, above.
For the uninitiated, the pages of this site (subect to updating) chart most of the Group’s history  including:-
  • Transporting the two ‘Cromptons’ to the East Kent Railway & their subsequent return to working order
  • Our Cromptons at the Spa Valley Rly. (from 2003)
  • 33063 named “R.J.Mitchell”, Sept. 2005
  • The overhaul of 33065 (commenced 2011)
  • Driver Experience days (also called Drive-a-loco)
  • News and updates on other Crompton activity in the U.K.
  • Articles on Crompton-related subjects; railtours and Class 33’s in bygone years, for example
