    I don't think I could get it down the side of the house, more's the pity, still less drag it down from Barnsley...

    No. I could maybe convince my partner it was a good garden shed, but I’d still need a huge crane to lift it over the house and into the back garden.

    I’m hoping somebody in the preservation world might like to take it on. Maybe even the NRM. It’s a very interesting - if stunted - branch of container history.

    The container has found a good home. Huzzah!
    Interesting notes on livery and branding, too.
