Are you interested in supporting the Erlestoke Manor Fund further and helping to support the operation of 7812 Erlestoke Manor, 7802 Bradley Manor and Large Prairie 5164 for future generations?

If so, membership of the EMF is open to anyone over 16 subscribing to a minimum holding of £50.00 (10 shares of £5 each). If you don’t wish to pay this amount as a lump sum, you can become a voting member over a period of time by making smaller regular payments.

The Fund welcomes all levels of support and encourages involvement from its shareholders through:

  • Shareholder meetings and events, including driving experience and special trains
  • Participation in regular working parties on the locomotives
  • Publishing members’ articles and photographs in our regular newsletters
  • Other fund-raising activities

The EMF is a Community Benefit Society governed by a constitution and is comprised of like-minded shareholders from diverse backgrounds with the aim of keeping its locos in active service for as long as possible. Since 2018 the Fund has been registered as a charity for tax purposes so is entitled to claim Gift Aid on contributions from UK taxpayers, further increasing the value from members and supporters.

The EMF is strongly affiliated to and supportive of the Severn Valley Railway through referendum mandate, shareholder cross-section and SVR involvement of the trustees and other shareholders.
