    Afternoon folks,

    At approximately 1255 today, while I was driving a Stagecoach Scania Decker on the A14 near Swavesey, a low-loader passed me heading towards Cambridge with a faded Green and Cream liveried Mark 2 Brake coach, possibly a BSO or BFK on the trailer.

    Can anyone tell me what coach it was, and where it was heading?

    Very Best Wishes,
    Bob.

    A Mk2a BSO was delivered to North Weald Epping Ongar Railway yesterday. This may be what you saw as it was enroute from the GC. I have not seen the vehicle yet, so cannot confirm if this was what your saw. Sorry I do not remeber what the number should be. I will update when I getr more info

    No doubt GM Simon Hanney will post a news item shortly on EOR's website.

    Yes I am an active volunteer
    Not much slips past the Nat Pres road-RADAR, and indeed it is at EOR, our Vac braked BSO which is shortly to undergo minor interior restoration and a repaint as we get our vac rake together ready for steam and diesel operation in a few months. More volunteers always appreciated, as it speeds up progress towards getting the trains running and we have a very friendly and welcoming C&W team.

    I don't know if I should mention the RFB which we also moved into the railway on the same day, as it appears that has been moved without anyone noticing it!!! :eek:)
