LBSCR 10-ton Goods Van rebuild almost complete

Sunday 9th March 2014

With almost all of the restoration work now completed, LBSCR 10-ton Goods Van 46923 was outside enjoying the spring sunshine today.  The wagon restoration team, lead by John James, have transformed the van from a heap of rotting timber into immaculate 'as new' condition in less than 12 months.  Although some less visible work remains, the most obvious requirement is for external sign writing, which C&W volunteer Peter Clowes will be starting very shortly.

46293, and other members of our heritage wagon fleet, were pictured in the sidings leading to the Heritage Lottery Funded 'Train Story' storage and exhibition building. 'Train Story' is due to open to the public in early April.
