The fate of the Colonel’s Royal saloons
Peter Davis
The Shropshire & Montgomeryshire Railway and the K&ESR each acquired a four-wheeled saloon from the L&SWR Royal train of the 1840s.  The S&MR example was transferred to the Longmoor Military Railway in December 1953, but broken up some three years later.  The K&ESR saloon was sold to the Southern Railway in 1936 for a proposed museum, but during the 1939-45 War the body was sold for use as a summer house, and was broken up about 1965
