This is my LDD Lego Version of the LBSCR 48 foot Bogie Coach which was first introduced on the LBSCR in 1903 / 1904, built in June 1903 at Brighton in the uk, by the mid 1930's the were being converted from 48ft to 58ft coaches, however some were sold to people to use as homes, storage and etc or being scrapped to surplus requirement, so not many examples have survived.However in 1989 one lucky surviving example was found at West Chiltington in 1989 by the Bluebell Railway, where it had stood since 1931, used as a domestic dwelling and latterly as an aviary! It survived in relatively good condition having been placed on a good base, and with a roof covering it completely, the LBSCR 48Ft Bogie Coach was restored and returned to service in 1999 and had a overhaul in 2010 - 2012 where the doors were replaced, the steam heating upgraded and the wheels re-tyred, The roof can be removed to remove or add Lego Minifigures as passengers.
