    I think yop are a bit confused about your loco shed timelines here. Bath was never a subshed of Weymouth but it is true that they swapped shed codes during the regional boundary changes in 1958.

    Weymouth was ex GW and was under the WR as 82F until 1958 when it transferred to the SR and became 71G (later 70G after 1963).

    Bath was ex LMS and came under the SR as 71G at nationalisation. After reorganisation in 1958 it went under the WR and became 82F. That apart there was no link between the two as they were always in different regions.

    Indeed I’m aware of that. My point was that with the prospect of these LSWR coaches running on the MHR in future, and lots of MHR volunteers effort going into restoring them, will there be the will or resources to ever restore the LBSC 4 wheeelers?

    The Brighton coaches were gifted to the MHR, and are, or were in storage at Eastleigh, What i was posting was the hope that once the LSWR coaches were completed, that the group may turn their attention to other historic coaches such as the unrestored S&D coaches, and the Brighton 4 wheelers,
    The matter of lack of covered accommodation for coaches will have to be looked into at some time in the future, there is no cheap options, and no easy answers,

    I have a question for members of the S&DJRT.
    Roughly how long does it take for new membership applications to process? Is it a while as I applied online in early February and had a swift reply about my application with a complimentary magazine arriving in the post. However, I have not heard anything since then and I am a bit worried that further correspondence to me may have been lost in the post.

    While visiting the WSR diesel gala yesterday, I called at Washford to see what S&DRT assets still remain there.

    I've attached 3 photos that show:
    (1) Three LMS wagons - a van and two open wagons, one built for Port of Bristol.
    (2) Ruston 4w diesel shunter and LMS Covered Carriage Truck.
    (3) Two vehicles under tarpaulins, which I assume are S&D 6w carriages, with a vintage oil tank and a small unidentified wagon.

    S&DRT blog indicates that their BR(W) Fruit D van is currently in the shed for overhaul. I assume that the third S&D 6w coach and another 4w diesel are also in the shed.

    The three LMS wagons plus the CCT may be the vehicles destined for transfer to the AVR at Bitton. But I don't recall seeing anything about what is to happen to the three S&D 6w carriages, two 4w diesels, Fruit D or vintage oil tank. Does anyone have any further information that they are able to share?

    I snuck into the Boiler Shop earlier. Couple of pics showing the current state of the boiler of Peckett 1788.
