7820 Dinmore Manor - The Blog

This blog will follow the heavy overhaul of 7820 through to its return to steam. The chassis is being overhauled at Tyseley Locomotive Works whilst the boiler is being overhauled at Ian Riley's workshops.
We are working hard every weekend to bring together the hundreds of small pieces that require refurbishing to get the loco back into working order. Follow us to keep up todate with the weekly progress and who knows if you like the look of what you see you may even be tempted to join us and help put 7820 back in action.

17th May 2014 - A Day to Remember

                                For the first time in preservation, two operational locomotives
                                of the Dinmore Manor Locomotive Group were paired up to
                      double head service trains on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway

                                    7820 and 3850 run round their train at Toddington Station

The locos have a 'splash' of water at the column at Toddington

    Having reversed their order, 3850 leads 7820 as they
depart from Toddington Cheltenham bound
