    According to the carriage survey there are a total of 7 IOWR carriages/bodies surviving, of which 6 are at Havenstreet.

    We have six of them :) There are two surviving Cowes and Newport bodies but they are not at Havenstreet, they are from 1862.

    The most likely outcome is that when more "Oldburys" are restored 6336 will be renumbered back to IWR 46 and redone in varnished teak and be part of the 1860s IWR train. The present 4-wheel set will hopefully be augmented by more restored LCDR coaches to make a longer 1880/90s set.

    I always thought her quite unfanciable. Odd isn't it.

    7 years old at the time, my taste differs somewhat these days!

    I am in the same boat as you, I had no idea that coach was being done, so what a great surprise!

    When I heard the IOWSR were involved, I just thought Channel 4 would swoop in on their latest 4-wheeler that has been in works, and film it's final restoration work which was on going in any case "in house". I'm amazed that an Oldbury has been done - I thought I'd have to wait years to see any of them done...

    We will just have to commission five more series now to see the other Oldbury's through! ;-)
