    Hi, a friend of mine in Sydney took 4 years to make the Lamps on this Coach; a team of 5 or 6 made the Coach over a period of time. There is another Coach in the process of being built for Prince Charles. So a Top Coach Builder in an old Military Base in Sydney is possibly the Worlds best Coach Builder.

    When I lived in Bunhill Row (a famous street for watch and clockmakers) the Whitbread brewery was the other side of an adjoining street. They kept the Lord Mayor's coach there and it was pulled by Whitbread Dray horses. They fed them on ullage, as they did with all the Met Horses (I believe Birmingham does the same)

    Perhaps someone should volunteer a traveling clock for the coach?
