I see from http://www.lnersvrcoachfund.org.uk/GWR_1145/GWR1145.htm that on Monday 2nd November 2009 the Great Western (SVR) Association's GWR 1145 was shunted in to its new home in Bewdley cattle dock, with the restoration and fitting out of as LNER (SVR) Coach Fund shop more or less completed, apart from a few small items and a final coat of paint and
lining out on the town side which will be carried out when weather permits.

See also http://www.bewdleystation.co.uk/Nov09.html

This will release LNER Pigeon Van 70759 http://www.lnersvrcoachfund.org.uk/lner_70759_progress.html for restoration. For the time being 70759 will be used as a workshop for the upgrading of 43600 & 52255, during this time some conservation and surveying will be carried out and the fine details for the conversion finalised

LNER Brake Pigeon Van 70759 website update November (see above link): in the absence of teak panels, varnished plywood has been fitted in the gaps where they’ll fit. Teak is now available from a sustainable source and the group will soon be appealing for donations to buy it.

Further update on 3o November on above link.

Quote:
Tuesday 9th Richard Gunning made a visit to the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at The University of Birmingham to collect a car load of the Iroko and Sapele timber that had removed during the refurbishment of the buildings, On Friday 26th Bob Russell and Mike Cranmore made a second visit this time with a trailer to get the rest and soon found more visits will be required. This has been made possible by Alan Yates of the University and his negotiating skills with University management and the construction company Clegg Construction Ltd.

LNER Brake Pigeon Van 70759... On 12 July the body of this SVR Rolling Stock Trust vehicle was moved from its original heavily corroded underframe by the LNER Carriage Group. The body was rolled onto a recently acquired underframe (from LNER Pigeon Van 70442) refurbished by the group. The transfer, a 'first' on the SVR, was achieved in little over three hours to within a quarter inch accuracy

Using technology that built Stonehenge and the pyramids, the SVR Rolling Stock Trust's LNER Carriage Group have successfully moved the 8 ton, 61'6" body of ex-LNER Pigeon Van 70759 from its original heavily corroded underframe.

The body was rolled onto a recently acquired underframe refurbished by the group. The transfer, a 'first' on the SVR, was achieved in little over three hours to within a quarter inch accuracy.

Carriage 70759 was built by the LNER in 1943, chiefly for wartime freight traffic. Such vehicles also had an important role in wartime ambulance trains in Europe and Britain. Some brought injured servicemen back to the large US Army hospital at Burlish near Bewdley. The body move is the first stage in the Trust's £50k project to restore 70759 to operate in the SVR's popular 'Teak Train'. This will include passenger seating and the original features for carrying racing pigeons, once a major railway traffic.

Thinks

A loco is identified by its frames, I'm not so sure about rolling stock. Is this vehicle now 70442 with a new body or is it still 70759 with a new underframe?!

Might not a similar question have been asked, a long time ago, about the Barry Railway coach at Hampton Loade? Surprised

Carriages are identified by the body so it will still be known as 70759
