On the website http://www.svr-rollingstocktrust.org.uk/news/news.html

I see the LNER(SVR) Coach Fund signed over three of its vehicles to The Rolling Stock Trust and will raise funds and care for their 'former' vehicles as agents of the Trust. The Coach Fund will still remain in being as owners of GNR 2701 and LNER 24105.

The Rolling Stock Trust now adds the following LNER Gresley coaches to its collection:
24068, a Brake Corridor Composite in working order.
43600, a Tourist Third Open, in working order but needing interior improvements which are subject of a current Coach Fund project.
70759, a Pigeon Van or Passenger Brake. This is currently undergoing a major remodelling by the Coach Fund.

Thread title changed from SVR Rolling Stock Trust updates to SVR Charitable Trust updates to reflect the organisation's new name.

The Club has three tiers of membership, and lasts for three years:

• Gold at £10,000,
• Silver at £5,000, and
• Bronze at £1,000.

A range of benefits from exclusive behind-the-scene tours, family passes and use of our luxury dining carriage for corporate entertainment are included in the membership.

The Trust is delighted to welcome its founding Corporate Partners - West Midland Safari Park, Hewett Recruitment, Great Little Breaks, Nexus Creative and Hills Ford.

Commenting on the new programme, Tim Hill, Joint Managing Director of Hills Ford said "Being able to give our suppliers, staff and clients something special, unique and incredibly memorable will assist in setting us apart from our competitors”

Capturing the Magic of the Severn Valley Railway

Three photographers have scooped the first awards in the Severn Valley Railway (SVR) Charitable Trust inaugural photo competition.

The Railway’s Trustees selected the winning images from over 80 entries that were submitted by enthusiasts and visitors to the Railway. Each of the talented winners will receive a family ticket worth £49.50 for a day on the Railway.

Photographs were submitted for each of 3 categories to represent all that is best about the SVR: People (Visitors and Volunteers), Rolling Stock (Locomotives, carriages & Trucks) and Infrastructure. Commenting on the submissions, Hugh McQuade, Chairman of the SVR Charitable Trust said “We were delighted both with the number of entries and the quality of the images that were entered. They really capture the essence and atmosphere of life on the SVR”.

The winners were as follows:




People


Duncan Langtree







Rolling Stock


Jed Bennett







Infrastructure


Bill Phillips





The winning entries can be viewed at Photo Competition Winners http://svrtrust.org.uk/news/photo-competition/photo-competition-winers.html and on the home page of the Trust site www.svrtrust.org.uk

The SVR Charitable Trust Photo Competition takes place quarterly. Members of the public can submit entries by emailing administration@svrtrust.org.uk

I know, its quite frustrating isn't it!
I made a point tonight of looking at every page to see if there were things I had missed. There was quite a bit but luckily I had already seen most of it on SVR Online.
