Notes Current location is adjacent to the museum building at Bishops Lydeard station on the West Somerset Railway. Found at a farm in Pershore and restored by West Somerset. Bears and Ashbury maker's plate (see second additional photo below) and, according to the restoration leader at West Somerset, "it appears to be made to a Brown, Marshalls and Co pattern". It had been thought to be an ex-LNWR vehicle but the manufacturer and various details on the body indicate that this is not the case. Any further information on the history of this vehicle would be welcome.
