Intro
As rolling stock starts become withdrawn and sold off, mostly for scrap, some preservation groups will attempt purchase them in a bid to keep them going for future generations. Unfortunately some of those that get saved from the scrap yard don't really get much further. Situated along this line is a mixed collection of coaches and other such vehicles rotting away.

The Visit
Starting off in the fashion that most rural explores do it was walking across a cow infested field and then through tonne of brambles. We started off at the furthest coach from the village and worked our way down, checking each and every coach.

Starting off was this First Class MK2d coach in a former BR Blue/Grey livery, abeit most of it was now graffiti. The inside was stripped and piled with broken chairs, apart from this one compartment.

The coach connected was the same type although as an open standard design.
Unfortunately I only managed a phone shot in here.

Next up was the driving coach of a BR Class 108 DMU, carrying a faded NSE ivery.

Moving further along stood a MK2b Coach which appeared to have been worked on or recently dumped.

Along the line was Stoneblower, a form of engineering vehicle.

Unfortunately the rest of the coaches were inaccessible and I had forgotten to take any externals in the rush of trying to get into each train. So, that'll be all.
