A photographic record of wagons outshopped by the Wagon Group since our formation in October 2011. Most recent images are at the top.
Cosmetically refurbished: May-August 2015.
Restored into James Bond “Octopussy” circus train condition and livery with continental style numbering ‘231-8-17’, as per its appearance in the train chase scenes of the movie, which were filmed at the railway in 1982. External restoration completed: April 2015.
Repainted into BR livery as ‘B494730’ as these wagons were a direct copy of the BR diag. 1/044 ‘Highfit’ (both originally had timber plank sides). Returned to full operational condition (complete with replacement floor section): September 2015.
As MoD 4730 above, No.4726 was also repainted into BR livery as ‘B494726’. Returned to operational condition: February 2015.
Roped over BR ‘Shock’ open B721890 (which carries an authentic tarpaulin bar) since September 2013.
Body and floor overhaul to be completed.
Returned to operational condition: September 2012.
Returned to operational condition after a full rebuild by one of our members, involving a new replica body mounted on a bare chassis (which itself was in a previously poor, derelict condition after suffering a fire whilst en-route to the NVR). After a four-year restoration, it was released into traffic during September 2011.
