As older members will be aware, in the 1990's Steam Railway magazine initiated a scheme to purchase some of the last remaining 16T steel bodied Mineral Wagons. The project was very well received and the money raised eventually purchased 39 wagons, which were offered a home by the Great Central Railway. The aim of the project was "to recreate a lengthy train of mineral wagons". Three wagons subsequently went to the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. A small group of volunteers were formed who have been working on the wagons to restore, repair and repaint them. At this point in time 34 wagons have run on the GCR and two remain un-restored but are cosmetically painted. The GCR usually run 18 wagons in a rake for operational reasons but can make up a longer train if required. It has been said in the GCR "Main Line" magazine that they wish to get two rakes of running wagons to be joined sometimes to recreate that "lengthy train". Now the Blaenavon and Pontypool Railway are raising money to fund a move of a number of wagons which are to be on a "long term loan". How does the wider readership on here view this, as there are several aspects to consider.....keep the collection together? Have some wagons go "On Tour" for fixed periods. Split the collection up between two or more locations?
