Cheshire Lines Committee Coach Parts Salvage
TOP: As found
We were unable to feature Tony's pictures of the dismantling in the last edition of qn so are pleased to do so now to show just how much of a basket case the coach was.
A number of different coaches at Quainton will benefit from the Cheshire Lines Committee (CLC) coach body dismantled in Scotland by Tony Lyster and friends. Apart from those originally intended - such as the LNWR full brake, where the oak end frames will be very useful, some of the smaller parts may be traded with other groups.
The importance of moving quickly on new discoveries was brought into sharp focus last year when 2 S&DJR coaches that were rediscovered were torched and almost completely destroyed by arsonists before they could be rescued!
