Just a shame 35026 didn’t make it into preservation ...
Have these four Manors actually appeared together yet in preservation? That said I do not think that all four A4s appeared together as consecutively numbered locos either. I have photos of 60008/09/10 lined up at Shildon when the trans-atlantic duo first arrived. I also have photos of 60007/8/9 together at the Great Gathering, but by this time 60010 had reverted back to being 4489.
That was Swindon for you, no point carrying out unnecessary renumbering with proper cast numberplates on the cabsides.....
7819 last steamed in 1994 and 7820 first steamed in preservation in 1995, so no.
I’m still looking forward to seeing U class 1638 and Pannier 1638 running together to really confuse a roster clerk...!

Always think a good one would be 60163, 61306 and 63601, you’d have to really proof-read those loco workings!
You could throw 60103 in that mix for good measure too.
God knows 60103 is a right mix..
2x1638,2x1501,2x73129 and 46512,46521 for good measure.
Be great if Pannier 1638 went to the DFR for a visit when 9681 & 9682 are in traffic. 10 16xx's were based at Lydney so would be great to get the only remainer back on the line!
Has 9682 left Southall yet?
I recieved the latest DFR society magazine the other day and it is still there but being prepared for transportation (not due date was given).
