    Hello,
    Newly uploaded is the GWR 813 Fund Web site at:
    GWR index


    A few gremlins with photos.Some pages still need info etc.....
    More links, credits to add.Also a few correction might be needed.
    I have added many photos of the Fund's carriages and wagons.
    These problems will be dealt with over the next 7 days.Pat Goss and myself,Nick Baxter, will be updating the site next week when we met!
    I hope this will be a new start for the Fund.

    hello,
    looking like the locomotive will be in steam late 2015/early 2016.
    Costs have now reached £200,000.

    For anyone interested:
    a few photographs of GWR 813 being put back together.

    Hello,
    The locomotive looks doubtful for the SVR Spring Gala.
    There are a few issues that need to be resolved before the overhaul is complete.

    New page on the website called The Grand Tour 2001 - 2010
    There are gaps and possible errors!
    Anyone with photographs of the Locomotive between those dates are most welcome...contact via the website please!
    Also a growing gallery of South Wales Locomotives
