The 2874 Trust is committed to promoting the involvement of as wide a range of people as possible in our project to restore our 1918 built locomotive and provide it to heritage railways to become an attraction in their living museums.

The GWSR has a thriving Steam Loco Department and included in the active volunteers are a number of women – they are proving that engineering, restoration, firing and driving are activities for anyone with the interest.

We will continue to develop this part of our website - dedicated it to “the sisters of steam” – watch this space for more!

Here we have a clip of Tina Sutton taking the regulator of 7820 Dinmore Manor on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway, she is being supervised by one of the driver trainers, Stephen Burnett 

And here is Tina again in full protective gear working on 2874 - removing wasted steelwork to prepare for riveting new replacements
