Additional Notes Query date. Body (on its u/f) was grounded at Newport Maltings till P 1970 South Cambridgeshire Railway, Heydon. Some seating remains, also an original "3" on one door. Mess vehicle for "Newcastle" (MW 0-6-0ST), was also on site. By 01/13 moved to 'Rocks by Rail' (was Rutland Railway Museum) with intention to restore to running order. However, following that owner's untimely death, sold to a member of a railway group in East Suffolk and moved to The Long Shop Museum, Leiston, Suffolk on 18/05/18. The body has been reasonably well preserved by the existence of a corrugated iron roof overlay dating back several years. Understood that proposal is to refurbish the body and eventually provide it with an operational chassis, but further information on its location and confirmation of the future plans for it would be welcome.
