Unashamed early plug for this event which fits nicely into the 50th anniversary theme:

Any plans to bring in another" Manor" for the weekend to complement 7802 and 7812?

Bringing in 7820 would no doubt increase takings for the weekend but I guess that decision would rest with the board. I'm sure the question will have been asked but depends if the board wish to ' speculate to accumulate'.

Victoria Bridge - Barmouth Bridge

Very Happy

Perhaps we could turn Hampton Loade into Minffordd, given the fact that both are the interchange for a narrow gauge railway - albeit with Hampton's being quite a bit narrower than Minffordd's!

there was once a bigger narrow gauge at the other end of the station.

I'm unsure it was ever operational.

It was all taken away but not sure where it ended up.

I understand it was a source of amusement for Hampton Loade station staff at the time owing to its operational non-operational status! After dismantling around 1995 the equipment was taken away, possibly to somewhere in South Wales, we can't remember.

Any update on this? I believe the last 3 Manors on the Cambrian were 7802, 7812 and 7820 doing the final working. Surely an historical recreation/commemoration too good to miss?

Announced on Facebook this evening that 7820 'Dinmore Manor' is visiting. Very Happy

Full announcement on FB:

Quote:
Its very pleasing to confirm that there is agreement in principle for 7820 to attend this event joining 7802 & 7812. This threesome is particularly appropriate as these were the last three Manors in service on the former Cambrian lines & were withdrawn from service together - 50 years ago this November. The event will include all three locos operating on the SVR over the weekend of 14th/15th November together with associated footplate experience and photo charter events before/after that weekend. More info will follow. All subject to availability. Loco 7820 courtesy Dinmore Manor Locomotive Ltd.

Great news regarding 7820 - look forward to seeing it.

I have a quick question though regarding the fares listed at the bottom of the page. For a `Pre-book & save' adult ticket, the price is 17.50 plus 1.75 booking fee. For a `Purchased on the day' adult ticket, the price is 19.00. Am I missing something here? In fact, the only real cost saving is if you'd be looking at a Family ticket (or multiple tickets), so the question has to be asked why would anyone bother `saving' by paying extra? Am I the only one who doesn't see what the appeal of purchasing an advanced ticket is (other than to avoid queuing on the day I guess?).

This question is raised from time to time by passengers, and I don't think I'm breaking any confidences by saying the railway is aware of it. I wouldn't know if any change is planned. As you say, for multiple tickets it becomes less of an issue.

Back on thread!
