Hello,
Seems that GWR 813 will not be ready till early 2015, due to circumstances beyond the Funds control.
Still looking forwards to seeing the locomotive back in steam! Whenever that might be!

One for the webmaster, can this thread and

Hello,
How about paying the 813 Fund Sale Stand a visit whilst you enjoy the SVR?
The Fund could do with topping up the account as the overhaul of the Locomotive has gone well beyond budget. Buy a book,CD or whatever to help get this popular Locomotive back in steam!!!
The Fund looks after Locomotive 813 plus a large collection of rolling stock,a great deal of it used regularly on the SVR Goods Trains.....help keep us rolling!
The Fund has a short fall at present of about 30,000.
Can you help?
All purchases and donations gratefully accepted!


Nick
Very Happy Very Happy

The Fund does have the funds available to finish the locomotives overhaul.
Any short fall could affect future rolling stock renovation.

Elsewhere Nick has posted that its post-overhaul identity will be GWR rather than Port Talbot Railway

Hello,
Appears that GWR 813 will be steamed late spring due to circumstances beyond the Funds control.
The cost of the overhaul to date has also increased considerably .
many thanks
Nick

Sorry to read of the delays, Nick.

Do you think she will be ready for the Spring Gala?

Thank you. Is the boiler yet insurance tested? Is the clock ticking on her boiler certificate?

Thanks

There is a new page on the Funds website regarding the 2001 -2010 Grand Tour by the locomotive.
It is by no means complete and probably has a few errors still to sort out!

http://www.gwr813.org/GrandT.html


Any additional photographs and information sort.
Please contact thru the web site Contact page.



There is also a growing collection of South wales Locomotive Photographs.

http://www.gwr813.org/gallery3.html

Many thanks
