The Hull & Barnsley Railway Stock Fund's coach number 1 took to the sky in March 2017 as it was lifted into a new site at Elsecar Heritage Railway to continue its restoration. The coach was at the back of the Elsecar yard and most visitors did not realise its importance. Now the coach has a more prominant new home adjacent to the Elsecar platform, a much better location both for the Hull & Barnsley Team working on the coach and for visitors to view their work.

Elsecar Heritage Railway asked the University of Sheffield to help us with expanding the vision for our business. We were allocated a great team from the Sheffield School of Architecture. Their passion, enthusiasm, creative energy, team work and fantastic media and presentation skills brought us a result far exceeding our expectations.
