Kidderminster Carriage Works Open Day, 15th July
Kidderminster Carriage Works Open Day, 15th July
A Peep Behind the Scenes. Many of the SVR's off limits workshops and signal boxes were open to the public for this event. Here we are in the Carriage Works (the former BR Kidderminster goods shed), where carriage overhauls take place and where heritage skills are very much alive. Here we see LNER teak coach number 24105 under overhaul inside and out. After LNER and BR service the coach became part of a nuclear war control train from which what was left of Britain would have been governed. The specially woven authentic seat material alone costs a large five figure sum. The coach is confidently predicted to enter service as a wheelchair accessible vehicle in September.
