Just noticed it in latest Heritage Railway.

Don't remember it being mentioned here that it was for sale.

Interesting as according to the VCT register it is privatey owned. I always thought the LNER coach fund were the owners.

The SVR Stockbook, ninth edition (correct to 30.6.9Cool, shows the owner as J A Giles.

Possible sale of Gresley Tourist Third Open 52255:  'Heritage Railway' this month carried a piece announcing that SVR-based TTO 52255 is being offered for sale by its owner. This vehicle is the only carriage in the SVR teak set owned by a private individual.

It is the earnest hope of the SVR Rolling Stock Trust and the LNER (SVR)
Coach Fund that 52255 can remain on the SVR as part of the Gresley set of carriages, ideally in the ownership of the Rolling Stock Trust. We cannot say more on this at present. However if you think you might be able to assist such an acquisition by the Trust - eg by way of donations or loans - do please contact us.
This should initially be by email to the Rolling Stock Trust Secretary,

Stewart Clark, at:-

Trust Company Buys Gresley Third Open 52255.

The good news is that this formerly privately owned carriage will not now be leaving the SVR. This had been a risk, as another heritage railway was interested. Thanks to the efforts of the SVR Rolling Stock Trust Company and the generosity of several individuals, 52255 has now been bought by the Trust. But this has only been done by the Trust providing substantive temporary funding to secure the deal. Further donations are therefore still needed to offset this. Such donations can be gift aided, and for a Gift Aid form Click here. Cheques, payable to SVR Rolling Stock Trust Co Ltd, and gift aid forms should go to the Trust’s Secretary, Stewart Clark, at - 47 Talfourd Road, London. SE15 5NN, marking the envelope ‘52255’.

A good result.

However, bearing in mind that we could easily have lost this vehicle, this should surely be a warning to those who seek to rid the railway of “surplus” coaching stock. I don’t know how many of our carriages are privately owned, but we do, I believe, have a number which are part of the National Collection. What if the NRM decided to recall them, as it did the ‘Quick Service’ buffet some years ago, or to transfer them to other lines?

These are educated estimates but I'm not an expert on who owns what. As at the latest (ninth edition, to 1998) stock book I make it that out of about 90 vehicles:

- SVR (H), GW(SVR)A, LNER(SVR) and Rolling Stock Trust have something like 65 between them.
- 8 GW, 2 LM and 4 BR vehicles in individuals' names
- The NRM had two diners
- The remainder are owned by other groups on the railway

Going back on thread I make it that the acquisition of 52255 makes the teak set owned:

- Rolling Stock Trust has 24068, 7960, 43600, 52255 and 70759 including the chassis from 70442
- The LNER (SVR) Coach Fund owns 2701 and 24105 (and in its guise as the LNER Carriage Group supports the RST)
- 643 owned by SVR(H)

EDIT: Bob Massey, GWA Sec., advises me I have missed 43612, SVRH owned from this post. Thanks Bob

Regards Patrick

Thanks Patrick.

I was a little concerned we might have rather more NRM vehicles, making us potentially vulnerable if there were a future policy change to spread vehicles around in the interests of ‘fairness’. I seem to recall hearing that not so long ago the NRM did consider recalling one of our catering vehicles for display in York, but it was then pointed out they already had an identical one, Is that true?

On topic: I note the teak set is now secure on the SVR. It’s ironic that we have the finest collection of LNER carriages in the country – on an ex-GW secondary line, close by LMS territory and over part of which the LNWR had running powers – yet the only post-grouping company not represented in the loco fleet is the LNER.

An excellent result. It couldn't, I think, have gone to a better owner, and is now safe for the Valley.
