WSR Locomotive Restoration Fund

The appeal is focussed on the long term security of ex GWR locomotives operating on the West Somerset Railway. The provision will be three locomotives of complementary sizes – Large Prairie 4110, owned by the WSR plc, and two
locomotives owned by the WSRA, Small Prairie 4561 and Manor Class 7821, “Ditcheat Manor”.
Restoring Small Prairie 4561 is the first goal. Work has begun and the WSR locomotive plan is to have it in traffic for the 2021 season.

It is anticipated that 4561 will be required for traffic in 2021, 4110 in 2022 and 7821 in 2026
