Progress on the Ravenglass Carriage

This is going to be a magnificent example of the sterling work carried out by the staff in the Carriage Works at Boston LodgeWhilst Ollie is sitting down on the job, it means he is at eyelevel with his work area – last thing you want is runs….  Once the first few coats have been carried out, it will be sanded back and then moved into the paint workshop for the rest of the coats.

Adam, fitting lights into the carriage, – did you know that the inlay is cut and fitted – one piece at a time – by the same young man doing the electrical work.  Multi-skilled craftspeople in the Carriage Works.There is plenty of work to be done on our own rolling stock, but it does help advertise our work around the other railways at the skills and craftsmanship that we are capable of carrying out.
