Mark told me that Station Road Steam in Lincolnshire have restored one of the coaches and it is for sale. Full details of the coach and a lot more pictures can be found on the Station Road Steam website here.
I must say the Station Road Steam team have done a fantastic job of the restoration. Look at the beautiful teak and the lovely green livery. The coach is priced at £11,500. I’m no expert on the value on miniature railway stock but that seems pretty reasonable to me.
Gosh, I am tempted. Although there are a few minor things I have to keep in mind.
- I don’t have the space to store it.
- I don’t have any track to run it on.
- I’m not sure I can persuade my wife that we really need a vintage miniature railway coach.
- I searched hard but I can only find £2.53 down the back of the sofa
I guess it will have to stay a pipe dream until I win the lottery!
Many thanks to Mark for emailing me, and fuelling my dreams. (Mark – I tried to reply but my mails are bouncing back because your servers think my emails are spam. I suppose IT systems don’t appreciate trains like we do!).
Finally, I hope the Station Road Steam team don’t mind me using one of their photos for this blog. The coach is so beautiful I couldn’t resist….
