GWR ‘Manor’ No. 7822 ‘Foxcote Manor’ will be returning to the Llangollen Railway in 2020, following a brief visit to the West Somerset Railway.
The Manor returned to the West Somerset Railway in July after a winter period at the Llangollen Railway.
It arrived at the West Somerset Railway for contracted mechanical work, and also signed up for a longer period as a WSR home fleet locomotive for the 2021/22 season.
However, due to a locomotive shortage at the Llangollen Railway, Foxcote Manor will be returning to Llangollen to assist with running trains over the Bank Holiday Weekend and until October, when the locomotive will return to the West Somerset Railway for winter maintenance.
Currently, the West Somerset Railway is running no train services due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Elizabeth McGuinness, General Manager at the Llangollen Railway, confirmed to RailAdvent that 7822 Foxcote Manor would be arriving at Llangollen on Friday 28th August 2020, and would help operate trains until the end of October.
