Dinmore Manor Locomotive Ltd

...

Dinmore Manor Locomotive Ltd have supported the creation of the 2874 Trust from the outset and arranged the purchase of our locomotive - they continue to provide expertise and the use of their tools and equipment as well as their buying power as an established locomotive restorer and operator. We anticipate an ongoing relationship right through the restoration and we will continue to use their operational experience when we come to run a completed loco on Heritage Lines.
