Great Western Railway 2-8-0 No. 3814

Copyright (C) Steve Frost

The tender of former GWR 2884 Class 2-8-0 No. 3814 has now been completed from restoration and has been sent to Tyseley Locomotive Works where it will be used on loan with the Betton Grange Society for use with their new build GWR Grange Class 4-6-0 No. 6880 “Betton Grange” while its own tender is under construction. Work on No. 3814 it self slow but the hire of its tender will help with funding of its restoration as new tires will be fitted to the wheels and work on the boiler can begin.
