9220 ex-1st 716 as it was running before the projections were removed when it was used by King George V on an inspection on the Larkhill Military Railway. This somewhat ephemeral line left the Amesbury - Bulford line at Ratfyn Junction and then wandered for 10 miles across Salisbury Plain serving WD camps at Durrington, Larkhill and Fargo (hospital) and Stonehenge aerodrome. The line beyond Fargo was lifted by 1923 and the remainder of the line in 1929. - information and photo courtesy of John Lewis

Under Construction.  This project is definitely work in progress. My research is on-going and I am slowly putting everything I have researched about 4 & 6 wheel coaches on these webpages. If you would like to receive an email when I update these pages please contact me through the Exchange Sidings.
