In the middle of a building site is the Carriage Works

With 6 Carriages in the workshops, there is plenty of work to be done, especially, when the entry track has been lifted and they are all marooned inside!

Stephen Paul, sharing his expertise with Allison and Hannah, working on 2010, They are both enjoying spending winter working in the Carriage Works.

Allison can normally be found in the Service Car on the Welsh Highland – she says, woe betide any staff causing damage to paintwork that she has worked on! Hannah does an excellent job of cleaning our carriages during the busy season but has taken to painting like a duck to water.

Attention to detail – one of Michaels many skills

Garaint enjoys being down but not out!

Exceptionally busy time in the carriage works but thankfully, with the winter staff plus volunteers to support Glenn’s staff, lots of work will be completed by the start of the new season!
