    Hi Guys
    The following coach bodies have been de-accessioned, awaiting disposal by the National Museum of Wales.

    If any railway or group has a "serious" interest in taking on any of these bodies please make your interest known asap. Please PM any contact info & I'll pass on your details to the person concerned.
    Cheers
    Steve

    Steve,

    Have you contacted Gwili Railway? Their homepage mention to get in contact if any such coaches become available either as spares or for restoration.

    If I had the funds and there were space at Manchester I'd be interested in the Hull & Barnsley coach body. (it could form the basis of a useful 3rd operational coach and ideal for winter running)

    I believe two of the coaches have a new home and the owners will tell us when they are ready.

    Is this recent Anthony? I've been told they were still available a few weeks ago.

    I think it is safe to say that these vehicles will not be broken up. However where they end up is still up in the air.
