New Church­ward ‘County’ 4-4-0

No. 3840 County of Mont­gomery of­fi­cially came into ex­is­tence with the cut­ting of its frame plates at Tata Steel of Wed­nes­field on Novem­ber 13. The first new metal cut specif­i­cally for the Church­ward County Trust, the 22-foot frames are the first to be pro­duced for the class since 1911. Af­ter shot­blast­ing and paint­ing, they were ex­pected to ar­rive at Ty­se­ley to­wards the end of Novem­ber, with the trust’s ‘100 Hun­dreds Ap­peal’ seek­ing to raise £10,000 for their drilling and ma­chin­ing.
