The first in a series of talks for heritage railway enthusiasts. Designing and building a new carriage shed is a complex technical project. Our new shed took nearly two years to build, partly because of delays due to COVID.
Now we have a large well-equipped area ideal for ongoing repairs, maintenance and rolling stock/locomotive restoration projects.
This event wil begin with a walk from the ticket office, through the wood to the carriage shed where we will explain the construction process and how we use the facility. We will also discuss our ongoing restoration projects.
