Q14.06. GWR Manor Class Allocations.

A member researching the shed allocations of the GWR Manor class locomotives has a record of the sheds they were first allocated to after leaving Swindon and the allocation at January 1st 1948 with subsequent changes. Details for the intermediate period, from delivery to the end of 1947, is sought (and normal research in the society library is unfortunately not an option at the moment).



The Manor Class allocation changes were fully covered in contemporary Railway Observers and Railway Locomotives, and Peto’s Register of Great Western Locomotives Volume Two – The Manor Class. Relevent details have been supplied to the querier.(RB:4901, ESY:5976, AL:19501)
