Carriage Taking Shape
Over the last few weeks our partners at Garmendale Engineering Limited have been working busily on Carriage number 5.
The chassis has been blasted and powder coated and is ready for the Superstructure to be fitted. The Superstructure has been fabricated and powder coated in a carmine red (Ral 3002) finish.

Each of the 34 seats has been individually fabricated, powder coated and finished in beautiful Iroko hardwood. Over the next couple of weeks Garmondale will be working to put the floor, seating and panelling into the carriage attaching the bogies and adding all of the intricate finishing details.

We are also proud to announce the new carriage will be called "The Snowdon Mountain Goat" - more about this next time!!
