Renovating NB Invalid Saloon 461 - Chapter 16

Painting of the exterior of 461 took on serious proportions during the autumn and winter of 2013/2014. Much filling and sanding was undertaken by the recently expanded team (hurrah!). The photos below were taken by Jim Summers and show the "state of play" in January 2014.

Jim Ormiston has been working inside the coach to bring the corridor up to standard. Some of the damaged mouldings have been repaired and a lot of varnish applied.
