A tale of two Manors, gleaned from social media.

On Febriary 19th 7802 suffered a broken spring hanger. 7812 was sent out to carry on the service, 7802 ran light back to Bridgnorth. The spring hanger was replaced so that the locos could swap again on AS1 second round trip at Bridgnorth. All was dealt with quickly and efficiently thanks to GWR standard parts, the wheeldrop and hydraulic weighing kit.

On February 20th 7812 had a problem with its steam heat - it will work its train this afternoon as booked, but 7802 will run the evening diner instead.

Has the electronic weighing system been abandoned?


Doesn't that require platform 1 road to be clear?


Yes it does. I presumed the work on the platform extension would have been finished in time for the half-term break.


I was referring more to the railway being open and platform 1 being in use for service trains.
There are quite a number of occasions when p1 is free on table A. for example AS2 uses p2 for nearly an hour having passed the up at HL
Just a tad off thread drift.

Continuing off thread - of thread or off thread?

I normally wouldn't comment, but it was a post from the Panda. Wink

Not as far as I know, but, as I understand it, the hydraulic kit gives a quick, adequate, get you back in service, set-up which can be refined later with the electronic stuff.


Although the electronic system can give very accurate results, its principal virtue is that it gives a very quick print-out of the load on each wheel. In the time it has taken me to type this, a loco could have been weighed two or three times. However, the system is in platform 1 road and to avoid the fiddling about in getting a loco from the yard to the platform and back, there may be circumstances, such as measuring the load on a single wheel, when it is quicker to use the hydraulic kit.

7802 was in steam today, presumably for testing.

We regret to announce that No. 7802 Bradley Manor will no longer be operating at the SVR Spring Steam Gala this weekend due to essential maintenance work being carried out.
[...]
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to visitors who had planned to travel behind 7802, however all efforts are being put into an effective repair being carried out. Further details are to be announced in due course to the extent of repair work required.


EDIT: Terry Jenkins on FB comments "there is a persistent steam leak from an inaccessible part of the outer firebox. Not a big fix once access is possible. Work to be carried out in the next couple of weeks"

EDIT: A photo tonight shows the boiler going back into the frames

Also featured on the GWSR Steam Loco Department blog.( Access via their main website)

An image of the loco "on the SVR" looks more like the West Somerset I think.

7812 appears in a pre-gala photo line-up at Toddington MPD, and in other images as well.

Here is the link to the blog, the image referred to is at the end of the blog:

Pity we don't have this sort of blog on the SVR. Makes interesting reading.

Whilst the locos are out working the hard core of working supporters are quietly making steady progress on the Churchward Tender for 7802. This is a substantial project bordering on a new build but using servicable old components & all new steel platework, frames & tank. In the first photo are the tender brakeshaft (with burnt off brake cylinder arm) and new end bearings and a good used centre steady. The second photo shows the new arm to replace the burnt off one. This will be quite a job completely refurbishing this little lot for use.
