The finishes on those pics look excellent, I would imagine it looks fabulous in the flesh.

And that, my dear friends, is the reason why they take so long to do.

'cos they're done right!

The GW(SVR)A is nearing the end of its restoration of 9103.

Quote:
The west side (the river side, so usually out of view) is now in Chocolate and Cream undercoat to match the east side. The commode handle has also been attached to the Guard's door. With the gangway ends painted and hung the internal curved end sliding doors are being fitted.

Can someone explain what a "North End Weymouth Quay plate" is? I have my suspicions but would prefer it explained correctly.

Do you mean an NXQ plate as seen on some ex GW coaches? - if so I understand that these plates indicated that the stock to which they were fitted was not to traverse the Weymouth Quay line (width or length reasons perhaps?).

Thank you. Something learnt every day.

The plated carriages now on the SVR were prohibited because of their width. Churchward seventy-footers, on the other hand, may have been prohibited not only on the grounds of width, but also length.

There were also restrictions on stock using the Eastern and Western Valley lines out of Newport.
