Welcome to the website of the EPB Preservation Group (EPBPG). We are a registered charity (1132225) dedicated to the preservation and restoration of  third rail electric multiple unit (EMU) trains that have operated on the former Southern Region of British Rail.  All our preserved EMUs are based at the
East Kent Railway, near Dover, Kent. We have a dedicated team of volunteers who restore and operate our trains, and are always looking for more. Others work to raise funds, man the sales stand and carry out admin duties vital to the running of a charity. Membership entitles you to participate in all of these activities and you receive "EPB Magazine" 4 times a year, keeping you in touch with EPBPG news.
  Please do consider joining us, see membership page for further details.

 Cep Project
The Cep motor coaches moved by rail from Stewarts Lane to Eastleigh works on Friday 3rd January 2014, hauled by West Coast Railway's 33.029. The route was via Putney- Hounslow-Staines Addlestone and then on the South West Mainline via Basingstoke to Eastleigh.  The coaches are now inside Eastleigh works so the rebuild can begin.  The EPB Preservation Group has a dedicated website for the rebuild of 4Cep 7105 back to as near original condition as possible. Please consider a donation to help with this unique project. Further details available at
