Carriage and Wagon Stock


QN is conscious that our collection of carriages and wagons receives scant coverage compared with the locomotives. To remedy this situation we are featuring some of the wagons that have recently received much needed attention from our volunteers, lead in many instances by Andrew Bratton, who must like painting on a grand scale. They now look splendid and are a credit to the Collection.

There is still much to do since the stock is not yet kept under cover to slow down the ravages of the elements. I am sure Andrew would appreciate any help you can give on his future projects.
