GWR 7800 Manor Class in OO Gauge | MPB Model Supp

The new GWR Manor class locomotive from Accurascale is a highly detailed OO gauge model that has many features which are unique to this design.

The most notable features are the die-cast boiler, which gives the locomotive a realistic and authentic look.

Additionally, the footplate and chassis are both made from a die-cast material, which provides the locomotive with a high level of detail

The 7800 class was the final 4-6-0 design to emerge during the Collett era and was introduced in 1938.

With a new boiler design (Standard No.14), the Manors were over 5 tons lighter than a Grange and nearly 13 tons lighter than a Hall with accompanying tender.

This allowed the locomotives to be used on important weight restricted routes throughout the network.

The GWR 7800 Manor locomotives from Accurascale is a highly detailed OO gauge model that will be a great addition to any railway collection.

GWR Manor class - prototype background

Due to their ‘red' weight classification, the Hall and Grange 4-6-0 classes were unable to cover the whole range of functions previously carried out by the 4300 Class 2-6-0 locomotives.

A less-heavy variant of the Grange class was required by the late 1930s to perform cross-country and branch line duties that were off-limits to heavier engines.

A lighter (Swindon No. 14) boiler was therefore created, and as with the Grange Class, driving wheels and motion components were taken from retired 4300 Class parts.

With an axle weight of only over 17 tons, the Manor class could be used on many routes formerly prohibited to heavier Granges.

The initial performance of the Manors which featured a conventional design and the re-use of existing components was only moderately successful.

The draughting was improved by later tests and internal modifications to the blastpipe, including an increase in air space in the firegrate, which resulted from a new kind of narrow chimney.

These modifications dramatically improved performance.

After trials on ten of the class, the improvements became standard after July 1954.

The first locomotives were sent to depots in Wolverhampton, Bristol, Gloucester, Shrewsbury, Westbury in Wiltshire and Neyland in South Wales.

Between Ruabon and Barmouth, No. 7805 Broome Manor was subjected to clearance trials in October 1938.

Following successful trials, the class were used over the main lines of the former Cambrian Railways route, with the works based in Oswestry.

The Manors were also successfully employed over the Devon banks between Newton Abbot and Plymouth where they were used for banking and piloting trains.

They were able to cross the Tamar Bridge and access Cornwall's branch lines thanks to their light axle loading.

During the 1960s, there were 21 Manors in Mid- and South Wales.

Their most prestigious working was the Cambrian Coast Express, in which a Manor took over from a King or Castle at Shrewsbury and worked its way to Aberystwyth.

Other members of the class served in the west country, Birmingham, Gloucester, and Hereford counties, while a few were based in Reading and travelled on to the Southern Region line to Guildford and Redhill.
