Current carriage workshop volunteer projects include Ashbury 21 which is nearing completion but needs painting, Carnforth Carr 113 which is having a guard’s area and toilet installed in the old first class compartments, and van number 6 which is in desperate need of some TLC.
Of course there is also the volunteer support of all the other projects ongoing in the work-shop.
Now I get to where I need your help. Team X under Norman’s leadership has run for many years and hopefully this will continue for some years yet. However like many things people get older and the time has come to form a new group of young people who may not necessarily have an interest in carriages but would like to still help the railway, learn new skills from joinery to painting or lining and enjoy being in a group.
With Carr 21 nearing completion we are looking towards the next big volunteer project which be a replica of the NWNGR Ashbury brake vans. I’m looking to form this new group to meet once a month. So why not join team Glenn, Y or whatever we finally call it.
If you are interested contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to just come for a few days mid-week.
