With that much lost, is it a restoration or will the build a new one according to the plans of the old one - just wondering.

Excellent conversion again.
Les Auld: The rest of it was spread about the yard and no doubt it will be put back together some day, thanks for the comment Louis.
Reminds me of the pictures you used to see of Barry scrapyard
Les Auld: I know just what you mean Bill, I still have several books showing such sad images, thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: If memory serves me right there were a couple of olduns alongside the GCR shed in Loughborough, thanks for the comment Richard.
I'm glad this is a restoration job and not a scrapper Les. Where do they start?
Les Auld: Afraid I can't tell you Brian, but I suspect it will be a few years yet.
