A very welcome return of the 3 foot gauge Manx coach, originally down at Duncans Yard in 2012 but now returned to Southwold where we can restore it, starting with the glass. That is the better side above but it is a lovely piece of work, including the famous Cleminson system below, a feature of fourteen of the early Manx coaches. The photo is a bit dark but it is all there. One of the hefty main timber sills is in poor condition but can be replaced. Once again, a very professional job by Wavetrade,  who organise the amazing crane and the low loader for our large deliveries like this with great skill. We will show more pictures once we get going with this during the spring. Any volunteers with woodworking skills would be very welcome to help us tackle this. Work days are on Wednesdays and Saturdays, starting at 10am.
