A look at the signal box (operational for the museum) and other stock. A GER Brake can be seen in the distance.

This is a Great Eastern Railway Third Class brake coach. At present it is a body on its underframe only, generally in good condition but with no running gear.
Brown, Marshall and Copmany Ltd built it for the Great Eastern Railway in 1873 for 256.
It is 22ft 6in long and was withdrawn from service in 1902. It was sold for the pricely sum of 8, and was used as a chapel at Great Wenham until after the Second World War , and during this time it received its present corrugated iron roof.

Since its arrival at the Museum on 6th February 1988, the only work to date has been repaint the exterior for weatherproofing.
It is grounded to the north of Chappel North Signal box, and it is at present being used for storing Carriage and Wagon permanent way equipment.
