Why we need your help

Thanks to your generous support we have raised the funds necessary to complete the restoration of this coach! We hope that the coach will enter service at Bo'ness during the next 12 to 18 months - for progress updates please see: https://www.gotopcs.net.

Gresley TK

No.10021 (it’s probable number) was built in 1924 and contains eight third class compartments which seated six passengers in each. Restoration work has revealed the inscription 'J Set 4', confirming that the vehicle was part of 'The Flying Scotsman' set of 1924.

Acquired in 1971 but yet to run under SRPS ownership, restoration work started in 2012. A body lift was undertaken to allow major repairs to be completed to rectify corrosion in the underframe gussets and replace perished body mounting pads. The coach is currently being re-clad with new teak panelling, and we have recently taken delivery of new toughened safety glass to replace all of the external windows. Work also continues on the internal refit: refurbished radiators (and the associated steam heat plumbing!) and reupholstered seats are now ready to be reinstalled.  

For No. 10021 to reach a condition where it can join our operational LNER coach set, we need to raise £18,750 to complete the restoration.  This will provide funds to buy new bellows (the heavy-duty rubber for the gangways), have the floor screed in linoleum and then purchase and lay new carpets. We also need to lift the coach off its bogies for inspection and repair. Finally, there will be the considerable task of signwriting the vehicle and applying countless coats of varnish to protect the valuable teak! With your help we hope to be able to return the coach to service in time for our 2022 season. 

In the event of insufficient funds being raised to make this project financially viable or the Society being otherwise unable to go ahead and complete the project, your donation will be put to a project most closely resembling this one. Conversely should the appeal become over subscribed, your donation will be held in the project fund for use in future developments.
