Well, a day after I found the Coventry carriages I hthought I'd try the ones at Long Marston that someone on here mentioned a while back (thanks to whoever you are). Anyway, found a number of carriages and a stone hopper and an oil tanker carriage. Some were sitting on sections of track (like at Coventry) but others were just on tarmac, large scars being etched into the surface where the rolling stock had been dragged along.

Fortunately, unlike Coventry, I was able to get into several of these ones. One was humming with flies. Smelt bad too - guess something had died in there. The mix of stock also included some postal wagons, a buffet car and a couple of those compartmentalised first class ones - again slam-door stock.

Discussion of the previous thread doen not seem to have enlightened us much as who actually owns these ones. Confusingly there is a well known (but Id assume totally inaccessible) collection on Long Marston railyard, the yard owned by the MoD, the stock apparently by the National Rail Museum and maybe others possibly including the Avon Valley Railway.

Well after all that chatter, here's my pics
