As part of the project to build No. 3840 the Churchward County Trust is hoping to pass on the experience it gains during the construction, while at the same time encouraging a greater degree of co-operation between other GWR loco owners, owning groups, restoration teams and new-build projects. Our aim, therefore, is to create an online digital database for all Great Western spares and patterns held in different locations around the country.
On this page we will make it which components we have that are surplus or spare, should any other group require similar parts, as well as listing any new patterns we have available. It is also open for other railways and loco owners to post details of the parts and patterns they have available for loan, ultimately building up a detailed database that will benefit countless organisations and hopefully save precious pounds lost through duplication in the long run.
