The Wolves branch claims "During Member's Day 2004 at Kidderminster Town the Branch handed over the custodianship of Hinton Manor to the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society Rolling Stock Trust (now SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society Trust)." - http://www.svr-wolverhampton.org.uk/ - with pictures. The 'Hinton Manor Fund' is referenced in the article from SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society News but seemingly the Wolves branch is correct?--Patrick Hearn (talk) 21:20, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

The quote about the locomotive having been "bought through the Hinton Manor Fund, with SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society Company help" appears in the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society Stock Book and also in the Charitable Trust Hinton Manor Page. The SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society Wolverhampton Branch was the major shareholder in the Hinton Manor Fund according to the notice of the EGM at which the handover was agreed. So I think it is correct to say that the ownership was transferred from the HMF to the Charitable Trust, but also correct to say that the Wolves Branch were acting as custodians in so doing.--Robin (talk) 22:19, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
