More good news on future of GWR Large Prairie 2-6-2T 5164

Following the acquisition of GWR Large Prairie 2-6-2T 5164 by Erlestoke Manor Fund, a referendum of EMF members has returned a 100% approval to amend the Fund’s constitution to allow its funds to be used for all three locomotives now in its ownership.

This means that fundraising to restore 5164 for operation on the Severn Valley Railway can now commence in 2022, while work to bring back 7812 Erlestoke Manor and 7802 Bradley Manor progresses well.

Adrian Hassell, Chair of Erlestoke Manor Fund said he was “delighted to see the unanimous support for the new project from the existing EMF members”.
