In March 2015, the Heritage Lottery Fund confirmed approval for the Canadian Pacific Project. The project encompasses the restoration of Bulleid coaches 1456 and 4367. Work was started swiftly on 1456, with the majority of the metal frames completed by the end of January 2016, whilst 4367 has had to await until spring 2019 before the majority of work to be underway.
1456 will be finished beginning of 2019 and out in service mid-2019.
4367 will be started in the beginning of 2019 and finished in 2020 in time to run behind Canadian Pacific.
