Did a bit of progress on the Coach balconies. These had a very attractive style of safety rail, with a safety chain across the gap.
the coaches had manually operated brakes, with a brake handle at one end of each coach.
Three coaches (No.1, No.3, No.5) had brake handles at the Southwold end of the Coach, and the other three (No.2, No.4, No.6) had brake handles at the Halesworth ends.
presumably this was so the gaurd was able to put the brakes on two coaches simultaneously, without having to walk through the carriage to reach the other brake handle.
