It's been a while since the last blog in April when Box 3 was still in the workshop...and still blue! 

The Box was completed in May, including a full respray in Boxed Drinks grey to keep it looking smart and uniform with the fleet. Since then it's been out and about all...

What a day to have booked to take the Box in for a new coat of paint.... The Beast from the East storm truly hit the Midlands in early March 2018, but we still managed to crawl into the workshop!

 So its been a while since Box 2 was mentioned! After a few months of been parked up, it was time for the renovation work to begin!

 Mrs. Boxed Drinks came across this beauty one evening in autumn 2017. The next day Mr. Boxed Drinks headed off up north on an 7 hour round trip to bring Bluebell home! 

It's become a strange rehoming centre here at Box HQ for old retired horse box trailers, I can't hel...

That's what I said to Mrs Boxed Drinks, who thought I'd officially lost it. Perhaps the paint work had put others off but not me. I could see it's potential and loved it instantly.
