The Crewe Cab is currently being restored at Crewe Heritage Centre. For those of us with the immediate question of "What is/was the Crewe Cab" there are photos on Zenfolio site,captions explain enough. In Gallery/Group Requests October 2016-2 or link here http://www.zenfolio.com/lnwrs/p818543805 although they may move in near future.

Still under restoration at Crewe Heritage. Talking to those working on it that one of the wheel-sets has L&M Rly stamped on it. Could this be the Liverpool and Manchester Railway? If so, these could be the oldest set of Railway wheels still turning in the UK. When completed (2018?), it was suggested that Ramsbottom 0-4-0 1439 may be borrowed from Ribble Steam Railway to recreate a scene that would have been familiar in LNWR days when a similar matched pair acted as a Pay-Train in Crewe Works.

I have heard that the LNWR cab, decaying crane, runner, carriage and brake van are all for dale. Can anyone confirm?

Mike,
According to the "Cab Team" the Crane and the Van are next in line for static restoration by the same team. But is was last year!

I spoke to Mike Lenz recently and he was very upbeat about the cab. However we will discuss it when I can get my meeting with him arranged!

Well that's encouraging. A friend recently visited with a view to buying one of them and was told all were for sale. He concluded that the crane, runner and brake van were beyond economic repair, so it seems that may have been a pessimistic view, which is good news.
