Better not mention 2857 then.... Still the group have got the right idea and are getting on with much of it themselves. http://www.2857.org.uk/

I already am thank you! Smile
However, the issue with 4930, is that it is not a group owned engine, but is owned by the company, as I am sure you are aware. However, the 'Friends' group are doing a good job and are raising significant amounts of money towards 4930. Click on the link below...

well surely thats debatable....
A moot point perhaps; but isn't the heart and soul of an engine said to lie within the frames? Won't 82045 begin to exist when the frame plates are joined by stretchers?

Might i ask how long Bradley manor has left on it's boiler certificate? I know it's sat at Bridgnorth doing nothing but this as i'm told does not matter to a boiler certificate and it will continue to run even if the train does not.
If it is still in ticket then will we have two operational Manors on the same line for the first time in so long.

For loco 7802 the boiler certificate (10 yearly) runs until October 2011.

So yes 2 manors should be in traffic in 2008 & beyond on the SVR.

EMF (the owning grupo for both locos) is planning some events using both of them so watch this space............

The last time two SVR Manors were servicable at the same time was as long ago as 1985 when both 7812 & 7819 were in service. The only other class member to have operated on the SVR in the preservation era was 7822.

It would be interesting to know if any 78xx class locos operated over the SVR pre preservation - the only evidence known to date is a photo of one on Dowles Bridge (Tenbury line N of Bewdley) on a ballast train.

You mean u don't want to build the originally intended route to Wolverhampton from Bridgnorth? Ironically, it's probably the one that would be most useful now if they'd all been built, and all were open!

Those of you who keep banging on about 4930 and others put your hands in your pocket and bring it's overhaul closer.

Regards Dave


Will ask the 4930 lad's to see if your cheque is in then!! Or even better will find out if you've been down to help on the loco?? Comments like this are easy to make behind a computer, if you WAS involved you would know there is far more to the railway.

everybody has ther own personnal preferance as to which loco should be next in "the queue" and some will be more likely than others due to the way the railway operates size of trains etc. as the captain says if you dont back up your preferance with hard cash or hard graft then put a sock in it and leave it to those who do. speaking as one who has banged on about 4930 in the past

and shouldnt that be WERE Cap'n.

apologies in advance for the punctuation im using a azerty keyboardé&é"§č!!

Captain Jack

Don't make statements like that without knowing what you are talking about.

I have been in a wheelchair since 1968 this did not stop me in the early days helping where I could on 7819 and again leading up to running mainline in 1984.

I am probably not able to do too much now as arthritis after nearly 40 years in a wheelchair has taken it's toll.

If I had the money I would be putting it into getting 7819 ready .

Incidentally I had to pack in going to Bridgnortrh because my missus kept giving me hell for leaving black lines all over the carpet.

My involvement with steam goes back to the 60's when I helped in restoring my fathers engine and later drove it for many miles up to my accident.

So you see my involvement with the SVR has never been as much as I would have liked had things been different

dont make comments about people "banging on" about 4930 then if you dont expect some come back from the people "banging on" who are putting their hands in their pockets and getting their hands dirty.

Although i sympathise with your situation im pretty sure the the captain doesn't have a crystal ball (a black pearl maybe!!!) and could not know about your situation, any more than you know about anyone elses on this forum!
