BR Mk1 Coach 4686

This carriage had been stored out of use but over the last few years has been gradually restored and is now close to completion. Apart from some relatively minor 'tidying up' jobs, the main outstanding task is to fit new springs to the bogies. It is hoped to have this coach ready for use at the 'Somerset & Dorset Pines Express' event to be held at the railway on Sunday 25th April, where authentic ex-S&D motive power will work together once again in the form of BR Standard '5MT' 73050 and Fowler '4F' 44422.
