Whilst may be not directly involving 2874, Dapol have announced a limited edition 4mm scale model of 7820 Dinmore Manor. The locomotive will be produced in lined BR MT lined Black livery with a Churchward 3500 gallon tender, and will be  as close as possible to how 7820 emerged from Swindon in 1950 as the first BR built Manors . There are 3 derivatives , DCC ready, DCC fitted and DCC with sound (the sounds used will be genuine 7820).

All profits form the sales (which will only be available via GWSR or Dapol) will go to GWSR with a donation being made to our partner organisation DMLL for each locomotive sold . So why not express you r interest now and you will be helping GWSR, DMLL and indirectly the 2874 Trust for the sooner DMLL can return 3850 to steam the sooner we can all concentrate on 2874.
