    During a recent tidy-up, we found a quantity (a large pallet-load) of timber from a dismantled Gresley coach, including pieces of internal partitions, internal doors, teak ribs, moulded roof frame sections, etc. It occurred to me that it might be useful to coach restorers, certainly seems a pity to burn it! Anyone interested?

    From the Dia 27 open Third that was broken up at Mangapps I assume? There might be interest in some of that if it includes the bulkheads and doors between the saloons.

    I would have been but have had some problems with my account that stopped me from posting - but fortunately my colleague Wavey was on the case too!
