There has been a long standing appeal for money for the Corwen station and there was a very specific appeal for funds towards the bridge repairs last November. These are therefore almost certainly restricted for these purposes and could not be used towards anything else like buying stock/track. I think it has been pretty well confirmed elsewhere that 7754 is not going to be sold. It would be an incredibly unpopular decision with the volunteers who have carried out most of the work on it, not to mention the membership and other donors as shown above. Jennifer and Austin 1 are a different matter (as has already been written). Neither are appropriate to run full time at LR, and so have spent almost all of their operational years on other lines recently. This sort of thing is very likely to have been losing the plc/trust money. I would therefore think if the price is right, selling them may be the best option for all involved. If not, hiring/using them in the short term will continue, but when it comes to future overhauls does anyone really think this is likely to be the best use of the Trust’s money?
