Met Rowan from the Bluebell carriage works today, a great guy and a very knowledgeable one. I had taken some photos , so he got some idea of 53's construction.He reckons it would be a teak frame. Rowan gave a very sobering account of what you need to do, including health and safety issues, and also the perils of poor preservation. I think cost wise between £15,000 to 20,000 for the body We also talked about where it would end up, and I am not sure about this.A very useful day.
