*First guest engine announced*

7822 Foxcote Manor

7822 will be joining us from the West Somerset Railway. The Manor class of two-cylinder 4-6-0 tender engines was designed by C. B. Collett, the Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Great Western Railway. A first batch of 20 was built at Swindon in 1938. A second batch of ten was delivered in 1950, to what had become Britiish Railways (Western Region). 7822 was one of the post-war batch, and was allocated to Oswestry depot when new. It spent its whole working life in Shropshire, Cheshire and North and Mid Wales.
