GER Boston Coach (E61533E)
GER Boston Coach (E61533E)
Built in 1921, this is a Great Eastern Railway bogie composite coach. It had a side corridor with compartments, and has original Great Eastern Railway bogies. Both the exterior and the undergear are in reasonable condition, but the interior has been stripped. After withdrawal it saw departmental use, latterly with Signal and Telegraph engineers at Boston, Lincolnshire. It arrived at Chappel on 25 August 1988.

It is a rare and vital link between the GER main line coaching stock and the onset of Gresley-influenced replacements, and is one of only two GER bogies coaches preserved, the other being on the North Norfolk Railway at Sheringham.

A considerable amount of work has yet to be undertaken on restoring this coach, after which it will be possible to run this vehicle in the Museumís demonstration passenger train.
