National Transport Trust is registered in England as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO),  Charity No. 280943. 

It has been set up to promote and encourage the permanent preservation for the benefit of the nation of: 

1. Transport items of historical or technical interest of all forms, rail, road, inland waterway, open sea and in the air so that the development of transport through the ages can be clearly seen; and
2. Books, drawings, films, photographs and recordings of all those forms of transport. 
In the furtherance of these aims, the Trust sets out to promote and facilitate co-ordination of the transport preservation movement and seeks to advise and assist in all aspects of preservation, including the raising of funds.  It celebrates transport through its annual awards programme.
Structure and election process
The membership of the Trust is unlimited and the Trust is managed by a Council of Trustees, approved by the members at the Trusts AGM. The council shall be composed of not less than 5 nor more than 16 members.
The liability of members is limited to an amount not exceeding £1.
The Council aims to have trustees representing all forms of transport including railway, aviation, road vehicles (car, motorcycle and commercial), military, maritime, waterway and agricultural vehicles, keeping a balance of interest between them. A candidate will be discussed by the existing trustees. On approval he or she will be approached and asked as to their willingness to serve. A positive response will then lead to nomination, secondment and appointing at the AGM, or possibly following co-option if midway through the year.
In addition to the above the Trust should have in place a Company Secretary as well as a Treasurer, these members to also be Ex-officio members of Council.
The Council shall meet together at least twice a year.
