A sight that you don t get to see very often, three Gresley designed coaches side by side in Rothley works at the same time all being worked upon. The image, by Chris Lang, shows former LNER pigeon van 4149 on the left hand side, which is being cosmetically restored as an ambulance coach. The centre road holds LNER tourist third open 23981 which is undergoing a major rebuild. Finally on the right hand side is LNER buffet car E9124E, which is owned by the David Clarke Railway Trust.
