“Fittings Fit for a Manor” Raffle

7819 Hinton Manor is currently on display at the McArthur Glen Shopping Centre at Swindon, in one of the very buildings where it first saw light of day in February 1939 - the last of the class to be built by the GWR. Hinton, like many of the Manors, will always be associated with the Cambrian Coast and, indeed, spent most of its working life in Mid Wales before withdrawal in 1965 and subsequent movement to Woodham's scrap yard in Barry.

The loco was purchased and, after restoration, first returned to traffic on the SVR in 1977. Following a second more major overhaul, 7819 ventured back onto the mainline in 1985 as part of the GWR 150 celebrations. Hinton returned briefly to its old stamping ground on the Cambrian Coast in 1987, before continuing in SVR service until 1994, when the boiler certificate expired.

'Out of sight' does not mean 'out of mind' and following transfer of ownership to the SVR Rolling Stock Trust - thus safeguarding the loco's future on the SVR - fundraising restarted in earnest. An assessment of the required boiler repairs has been made, new tyres for all wheels have been pruchased, and its now time to accelerate the fundraising further, ready for when 7819 returns from Swindon in 12 - 18 months time.

Thus, in the meantime, the opportunity is being taken to overhaul or replace worn out cab fittings as appropriate, hence the need for this raffle. You are invited to assist with fundraising through the sale of these raffle tickets or, alternatively, you may like to make a donation to the Rolling Stock Trust. Remember, if you are a taxpayer, by completing the gift aid declaration [on the back of the raffle ticket booklet], the taxman also will make a contribution!

Thank you in anticipation of your ongoing support - every penny counts.
