    Here are a selection of photos of lswr 1357 in its departmental livery, there is also a fair amount of post office red from its previous livery. There are traces of sage green from when it was originally built as a third brake corridor carriage with four compartments,luggage compartment and guards section with wheelbrake.

    Great news that a home has been found for this, and all the best with your future plans for it.

    Is there any update on where the dining cars might be going?

    Has there been any further updates on the situation of the 2 carriages? Last time I heard anything about them was before the date that needed to be removed by.

    I was wondering this myself. On the BTS Facebook page it shows a photo of their latest news magazine ‘currently in production’. Tantalisingly a picture of an LSWR dining car is visible, so there seems to be some sort of update, but I can’t see what it says.

    Hopefully there'll be some positive news coming soon then.

    If he is, I think you'll probably be very disappointed by the interior shots. I suspect there's very little of the interiors - and the exteriors don't look that great either!

    I was hoping he meant photos of the latest BTS news magazine to be honest, so I was able to see the updates.

    Yes certainly not much left of the the coach interiors, as shown on the BBC news feature in May.
