L&YR Saloon 12 rescued

Updated September 2021
In 2018 we advised in ON TRUST that we had inspected Saloon 12 which had been owned by the late Dave Lewis, which was for sale by his widow.  We had decided that we could not take on the project but a few months later there was a threat of destruction, so it has been rescued and put in safe storage pending looking for some charity or society who can take it on for full restoration, although the Trust may take on the work.

Below is a photo of it in storage prior to being covered with a large waterproof cover.

February 2021 a chassis has been secured to provide a suitable level base during restoration, it is only 4-wheeled and may be in future be replaced with a more appropriate 6-wheeled chassis.
