Welcome to SRPS C&W Department

LNER open wagon This site is run by Don Clarke, a volunteer at the SRPS. On this site there is a lot of information about the electrical aspects of coaching stock, the Carriage and Wagon Department restoration and renovation activities, a picture gallery including ALL the LNER pacifics and a section on BVE, the Japanese authored train simulator for the PC for which Don has written some routes - Edinburgh to Aberdeen and the Bo'ness and Kinneil branch.


Ancient Graffiti



When John Forrest was de-scaling this wagon prior to repainting, lettering and numbering, he came upon this rather amusing picture which must have been painted around the time the wagon was constructed - late 1940s.

openBVE

openBVE routes to Aberdeen are still available for download although they have not been updated for several years. Thus the scenery is rather "dated" but it's still fun to drive if you can bear sitting in a 158 (for example) for 2 hours 40 minutes! Check it out!.

Restoration

  • LMS TOs 27407 and 27389 Rebuilding Chapter 4
  • LNER TK 1002 is currently "on hold" until labour is available.
  • LNER Sleeper E1211E has now been externally completed on the north side and is awaiting shunting so that work on the south side can start. This will involve stripping off the old boarding, repairing the framing where necessary, then re-cladding the vehicle with plywood. It will then be painted in its 1970s colour scheme of blue and grey. There is a photographic "history" of work on the north side on Flikr.
