The Mid Hants Railway, also known as the Watercress Line, has announced that one of the accommodation carriages will be scrapped to provide the monies to refresh the remaining accommodation coach.

This comes after the Trustees of the railway decided it was time to free up some siding space at the station.

It is anticipated that the Mk2 carriage will be scrapped week commencing the 16th April 2018.

If anyone is, therefore, looking for any BR MK2 B carriage momentos, such as Large horizontal mirrors, luggage racks, small window-side tables, or anything else!
