The Move to Tyseley

The 6880 Betton Grange Society have reached an agreement in principle to relocate their assets, including new-build No. 6880 Betton Grange, to a new permanent home at Tyseley Locomotive Works.
The 6880 Betton Grange Society wish to put on record its appreciation to the Llangollen Railway for providing a home for the project during its earlier stages and wish the railway well for the future. We look forward to taking a fully operational Betton Grange to Llangollen to haul trains there in the future.
The Society’s assets also include unrestored No. 5952 Cogan Hall and arrangements are being made for this to join No. 6880 at Tyseley. The 6880 Betton Grange Society are grateful to Tyseley Locomotive Works for providing home for existing and future projects.
The priority for the Society is the final assembly of Betton Grange which Tyseley Locomotive Works has been commissioned to complete, with a target steaming date in the autumn. It will then focus its resources on building a new tender for the ‘Grange’, with the objective of building a replica Collett 3,500-gallon version, a chassis for which is already in its ownership.
The opportunity is being taken to cosmetically prepare Cogan Hall for display at Tyseley and the Society invites expressions of interest in helping start the restoration of this former Barry scrapyard locomotive
