Sat 8 August - evening - Horsted Keynes Sidings Tour

A rare opportunity to tour the carriage stock stored in the sidings at Horsted Keynes - including a look inside one or two of the SR Maunsell coaches under tarpaulins - meet 5.45pm at entrance to Carriage Works on platform 5.

A donation of £10 is requested (towards Operation Undercover and Maunsell Restaurant Car funds). The tour is expected to take 2 hours; stout footware and a moderate level of fitness is required. Contact Richard Salmon for more information.

(We regret that the planned look at the Craven and Balloon coach sections sadly will not be possible after all.)
