Restoration of Class 119 Driving Motor Brake Composite W51073

The green compartment Rolling Out the Red Carpet

Progress reported on 10/09/12.

It has been a very exciting weekend for the team. Local carpet fitters attended the railway to fit the carpet for the First Class compartments. The carpet took three hours to lay, mostly because of the complicated cut outs for the access hatches. The result is fantastic and really starts to give an impression of how it is going to be when the seats and curtains are installed. The First Class really will be luxury for passengers on the railway!
