Great Western Railway 7800 Class No. 7821 Ditcheat Manor is a preserved British steam locomotive. The second of the last batch of 10 engines of her thirty-strong class, she was actually built by British Railways in 1950. Like most of her class of lightweight 4-6-0s, she was allocated to lines in Mid Wales, but was also based Oxley and Newton Abbott. Rescued from Barry in 1980 and was sent to the embryonic Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, before moving to the Llangollen Railway and then Swindon, restoration being completed in 1998, when it first steamed at the West Somerset Railway.show more
