Please select the membership level desired and then follow instructions on the right to join us as a member. Our membership management is handled by Membermojo so you will initially be asked for some registration details.

Within a few days of registration, we will send you a link through which to set up your regular payments via 'GoCardless' (direct debits).

Once the payment has been successfully set up, your membership will move from 'pending payment' to 'confirmed' within Membermojo.

Your membership, once activated, with continue to be valid for as long as the monthly fee is being paid. As soon as one or more scheduled monthly payments have stopped being received by the Thompson B1 Locomotive Trust, you membership will automatically expire.

For ease of administration we only accept regular monthly payments through GoCardless, but if you want to make a one-off donation or contribute to one of our appeals, please visit our donate page, where there are other ways to give e.g. via cheque or direct bank transfer.
