The 5164 Preservation Group
In July 2020 The Erlestoke Manor Fund announced it was in discussion with The 5164 Preservation Group and the SVR regarding the proposed transfer of GWR Large Prairie 5164 to the EMF. The announcement noted that "The 5164 Preservation Group is an unincorporated organisation with a small, diminishing group of shareholders, who have agreed by a large referendum majority to offer the locomotive to the EMF for a nominal sum. If the transfer proceeds, this would secure the locomotive’s future within an incorporated, charitable organisation strongly affiliated to the SVR".
