Heritage & Restoration

No items found.

We have built a reputation for our wide-ranging knowledge and experience of many UK, European and worldwide narrow gauge heritage railways.

Our extensive and widely recognised work means we are able to offer individual components, both new and secondhand, up to major works for both private collectors and society projects. Our work on heritage narrow gauge railways has been recognised and utilised around the world where a sound historical understanding of the railway needs to be melded with craftsmanship and modern engineering, whilst at the same time retaining the all important feel of the original engineering. The emphasis is on restore rather than renew.

We undertake complete projects from initial inspection and survey through to restoration and installation or can work with you on a consultancy only basis to provide your own specialist teams with the back-up and knowledge they need to make your project a complete success.

Craftsmanship every step of the way

We bring a unique level of research to all our heritage projects which is carried through to our design and engineering to ensure details are faithfully recreated and, where it proves necessary or desirable, sympathetically blended with up-to-date technology.

On an on-going basis we can take care of all of your maintenance requirements and provide maintenance schedules for your internal use - we know every project is different which is why we tailor our approach to match your needs.  

Whichever option is right for you, Alan Keef Ltd offers unrivalled support and expertise every step of the way. Scroll on down to see our heritage and restoration project gallery.
