Greetings! Thought we would issue an update for everyone to see!

Pleased to announce the the brand new set of tyres that were ordered for 7819, that is :-

4 bogie wheel tyres
6 driving wheel tyres
6 tender tyres

have arrived in the UK!! A little earlier than thought but they are here! Tyres to be storred for a while until delivered to the SVR in late August! They will be lifted off the truck and placed into a wagon to be storred on the railway until 7819 comes home in 2012!

This is great news and is a major step forward in getting 7819 back up and running again! Although it stopped running in 1994 as it's 10 year boiler ticket had ran out, the tyres were down to scrapping size! The SVR Rolling Stock Trust having bought the tyres, has given 7819 a new lease of life as the new tyres should last many, many years!!!

This is a great start, but there is still loads to do and still lots of money to raise! The SVR Wolverhampton Branch have comissioned a book on Wolverhampton steam in colour, and a painting of 7819 climbing Talerdigg! Details of these are available on the website for the Wolverhampton Branch, together with all the info on the scale models that they are also doing of 7819 and various brake vans! All monies go towards 7819's rebuild so please dig deep!!!

Also being made available soon thanks to Karl Jauncey of PSOV, is a DVD of 7819 Hinton Manor! The DVD follows 7819 on the SVR and on it's mainline outings between 1987 and 1993! The DVD is 51 minutes long and also includes a footplate journey on 7819 between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, with one Ray Tranter as the Driver! Some excellent scenes in the DVD and shows just why 7819 was so well liked!! The cost of the DVD will be £10 and again all monies go towards the rebuild of 7819! If you are interested in the DVD, leave me a note and i will get back to you ASAP! More details will be made available once DVD is available! Laughing

More updates will be posted as time goes on! Many thanks for the continuing support, and please keep the support coming! 7819 was a flagship engine for the SVR in the 80's and 90's and will be again!

Hopefully, this news will have a certain Mr Tranter smiling!! We've made a start Ray!! Wink

Sadly given the crazy world we live in, can I respectfully suggest that you ensure your new--and expensive--tyres are secure "stored in a wagon", from you-know-who.....

Tom, many thanks for the picture! The team at Swindon are doing an ace job in looking after 7819!

With regards to the DVD that will be made available to buy in the very near future! If you are interested in buying a copy of the DVD then please send an E-Mail to the address below with any enquires and info if you want one mailing to you!!

hinton.manor@gmail.com

Please bear in mind, the address will be being managed by me (Kev), and i work as a train driver for London Midland!! Some of the hours i work are strange so if you do e-mail the above address to buy copy of DVD or want info on 7819, the reply may take a little time, as i also have to juggle the family life as well!!! Please be patient, i will get to replying!!!

DVD's cost £10 pound, so will probably cost an extra £3 with posting and packaging! All monies go towards 7819 return to steam! Will confirm the total cost with postage and packaging when DVD's are released!!

Many Thanks!

( if you hadn't noticed, some of my spelling is pants!!! Apologies!! )

That is great news about 7819. I'll be honest to say I was too young to see 7819 in action, either on the SVR or on it's mainline outings. So may have to purchase the DVD when it becomes available.

Very Happy

7819 at MacArthur Glenn shopping centre, formerly Swindon works, is set to receive its annual seasonal decorations. Whether you think embellishing a steam locomotive with fairy lights and tinsel is in good taste or not, the fact is it will draw attention to the loco. People will then notice the leaflets, and the Rolling Stock Trust is also negotiating for a DVD to be played beside the engine to raise awareness and increase its ‘take’

The book produced to support the Hinton Manor Appeal, mentioned on the SVR Rolling Stock Trust site, "Wolverhampton Railways in Colour" was seen on sale at Ashwood Nurseries, Kingswinford recently, complete with notice explaining that the book was sold in aid of the Appeal.

Ashwood Nursery supported the SVR Flood Appeal in 2007/8 by having several posters around their site.

Small plug for them, decent plants, and an excellent restaurant, as well as being sensitive to helping a fellow West Midlands business.

I believe this is related to an SVR volunteer working at the Nurseries.

The SVR Rolling Stock Trust have asked MacArthur Glenn shopping centre at Swindon to hold onto 7819 for another year while it continues to raise funds for her overhaul (Rolling Stock Trust news)

Sorry wasn't sure where else to put this.

The SVR Wolverhampton Branch website has malware associated with it and is harmful to users, according to Google, which prevented me from accessing the site!
