Alan Keef Ltd - recognised the world over 

Founded by Alan Keef in 1968, we are based in rural Herefordshire and remain a family owned and run enterprise with a personal, as well as professional, passion for narrow gauge railways.  Alan Keef remains at our helm as Chairman whilst his son, Patrick Keef, is Managing Director and daughter, Alice Basey, is Chief Design Engineer.  

Together they employ a highly skilled and knowledgeable team of engineers, craftsmen and track-gangs who typically share the family's light railway passion, or have come to love it since joining the company!

Even just a brief glimpse through our website will illustrate the breadth of our work and the level of expertise we offer our customers whether they are looking for park and leisure railways; industrial capacity railway systems or simply a hobby or enthusiast railway to enjoy.

As proud successors to Motor Rail Ltd and Simplex Mechanical Handling Ltd who manufactured some of the best known and rugged light industrial locomotives, Alan Keef Ltd are able to offer full technical back-up to existing Simplex locomotive users.
