    The wooden framed wagon at Quorn would seem to be an ideal candidate for the Mountsorrel team to take on as they have a lot of wood working expertise. As the wagon has been moved slowly around Quorn, it should still be possible for a very slow move to Mountsorrel - if it could be agreed?

    I think the lift bridge is going to be the big challenge there for the coming months, so I doubt that anything could be arranged with the wagon at Quorn for a long time yet.
    The "loaned" Mountsorrel liveried wagons there need a lot of woodwork replaced and a repaint as well....

    Nice to see a Scarab painted in the grey livery - I don't think any of the other preserved ones carry that colour scheme.
    Just needs a matching box trailer now.........:)
