The Society was formed during 1987 by a group of friends who, since 1983 had been working together in restoring Brookfield’. The original name was the North London Locomotive Preservation Society (NLLPS). In 2002 the Society decided to change its name to the East Essex Locomotive Preservation Society to reflect the fact that our main operations were now based at Mangapps Railway Museum at Burnham-on-Crouch in Essex.
This video from YouTube gives a pretty good idea of what Mangapps Railway Museum is like. It was posted in May 2009. The voice you here at the start is John Jolly who with his wife June owns and runs the museum and has provided the Society a home for our locomotives for a good few years. This is an excellent film from The Railway Channel which is run by Mark Found, to see more like this go to http://www.youtube.com/user/railwaychannel
