    Not sure whether this will work or if sign-in is required, but there is a photo on Twitter at https://twitter.com/abnormal_loads/status/833955776167309312

    Unfortunately my phone is too old and decrepit to take a half-decent photograph of it in yesterday's full dull!

    Looks like a Maunsell large window design

    That certainly looks like a 1930 Maunsell Third open (single vent over lavatory window) which would confirm 1381, she looks to have been fitted with SR style gangway connectors now (had incorrect BR mk1 style when first restored) which I am assuming came from nondescript Brake 4449/7923 which Swanage broke up in the 80s

    LNWR 5318 and Pullman car Lydia are due to move from York NRM on 26/02/17.

    The former to Wensleydale after repairs to a door pillar by yours truly, the latter not sure of the destination.

    Lydia might be going to the Swanage to pair up with "Isle of Thanet"?

    ... which is stored under cover currently at Carnforth with "Bertha".
    "Lydia" had formed part of the NRM display "Churchill's Final Journey".

    There seem to be stories of Lydia, Isle of Thanet and Bertha changing hands and a different ultimate destination in the frame, but I'm not sure that their new intended destination is ready for them yet.

    Quite a surprise to see Lydia on the M42 heading down the M40 this morning.

    It will be coming onto the railway so it must have been fun with the roadworks.

    Must hitch it to miss moneypit when she comes to the railway in September, as it will be the first time the coach and engine has been together sense they went to the USA together.

    Except if what Mr Middleton told me about the the move was correct, then 60103 moved both coaches from the museum to the former carriage works!

    A very nice addition to the WSR fleet - I hope they'll appreciate it!

    I don't think that they are even classed as Vac piped.
    The 5 we bought the other year had the end connections burnt off.
    This would have been done way back in the 90s when Vac locos disappeared.
    However a number of the wagons are still classed as Sealions as they still retain the Vac cylinders and tanks.
    We have one that the intention is to restore it to operational condition dual braked. The remainder we plan to keep as Air only Seacows.
