We are extremely pleased to say that work will begin on one of the train carriages , thanks to all the skilled volunteers keen to begin restoration of our much loved train.
The aim is to dismantled carriage four housed in the train workshop and rebuild section by section in The Shed, started by Allan Fairhead; carpenters, boatbuilders and other skilled volunteers will lend their hand and hearts to restore over the next couple of months. The sections will then be reassembled in the Railway workshop at the Pier. This is a collaborative project with Blue Funnel Ferries who will be undertaking all engineering aspects.
Once this carriage is ready again for service, we will be able to commence restoration works on another carriage, our aim being that all four carriages and tractors are fully restored ready for the next 100 years!
