I was interested in the photograph on this thread showing an "O1" class 0-6-0 with two very dilapidated coaches in the background.  The one on the left is just like the grounded body that used to be in Sevenoaks goods yard up until 1960 (please see the thread I added entitled "Grounded coach bodies").  This coach does seem to be ex-LCDR rather than ex-SER; could anyone please confirm this, please?  Preferably please reply both on this thread and on my "Grounded coach bodies" thread.  Of the LCDR bodies recovered and held at various preservation sites, none has the "birdcage" feature like the one in the picture (and like the one that used to be at Sevenoaks).

in the foreground where Sandwich Road station was once

The last photo does not show the site of Sandwich Road Station, it is actually off to the left and the site of the platform is buried beneath the low embankment of the Sandwich By-Pass.
