It should be indoors. We could go and have a look when you're next down if you like.

The hearse is a converted quarrymen's coach - you can see the four door frames inside.

Here's a photo of the mystery wagon #166 and rated to carry 2 Tons of whatever it is that it carries. I would imagine coal as its very similar in size and design to the wooden coal wagons.

Cheers for that Merddin. Barney mentioned it having been converted from a slab wagon, by the look of the photo it must have been one of the LWB slab wagons.
