It is good to see that the Barry coach has a proper overcoat for the winter - hopefully this will mean less time need be spent recovering from the winter every year.

From the trust website today:

"Unfortunately your webmaster has been rather busy as of late helping to run and maintain Hampton Loade Station. Regrettably this has meant a lack of updates to the website. Our Facebook page however is run by a different volunteer and is updated several days a week. Please click here for the latest information on Facebook. This website will be updated in due course."

You may remember that during the summer patching was being carried out on the roof canvas.

As we got to the Kidderminster end of the coach rot was found in the roof. Work had already been carried out on some of the roof towards the Bridgnorth end where a similar problem had been encountered.

This time we are getting the repairs done as a contract job to speed up the process. As can be seen work is progressing well.


The steaming of the wood that will form the end gutter is being undertaken by ourselves. The wood will then be machined to the correct profile before fitting.

Yesterday the second batch of wood was steamed. The photo shows it clamped together on the former - part of long dismantled coach 164.

Work has also been progressing on repainting the roof vents. These will be taken away from Hampton Loade for undercoat and top coat to ensure the paint can dry is a warmer environment.

Here we are in the middle of winter and so activity has slowed at Hampton Loade.......not stopped, just slowed.

The final part of wood gluing took place over the weekend. This means that the sections will soon be ready for machining prior to the end gutters being replaced on the roof.

Progress with painting of the roof vents means that 3 are now ready for top coat.

The second of three expected contract jobs for this year has now been completed - removal and repair of rot on the corner posts at the Kidderminster end of coach 163.

We still have some side panels to replace and this will be done later in the year. One of the panels had rotted from the inside outwards due to a space within the panel created during manufacture.

This weekend saw the last bit of rot found in one of the First class compartments removed. Thankfully it was much less than feared.
Mike has also been gradually removing bits of old nails left in the wood over the past few weeks. A tedious job but worth the effort.

Work has started on the Kidderminster end of coach 163 ready for repainting. This end of the coach gets the most weathering and so the finish has a shorter life. This was last repainted in 2009.

Progress continues with preparation of the Kidderminster end of coach 163 for its first repaint in 6 years.

There is still more sanding down to do but we are well over halfway. Most of sanded areas have now been given 3 coats of Danish Oil and been filled as necessary then sanded.

During 163's service life it was repainted about every 3 years. We know this because of the layers of paint found on some of the original parts.

A Happy New Year from the Barry Railway Carriage Trust.
Our New Year wishes:
1 - To increase the number of volunteers helping restore Barry Railway coach 163.
2 - To increase the amount of financial support to enable us to be able to return 163 to service for its 125th birthday in 2020.
3 - To increase the number of people helping to run the Trust to enable us to spread the workload.
4 - Reasonable weather to enable us to make good progress externally on 163's restoration during the summer.
This is the first time we have stated a date for getting 163 back into traffic, but it is dependent on getting more physical and financial help to achieve it.
So far over 50,000 has been spent on the restoration and we anticipate that another 25,000 or possibly more will be required. A sizeable part of this will be for the coach to go through Kidderminster Carriage Works prior to being accepted into traffic.
We hope that you share our aim of achieving this and can help make it happen.

The first compartment has now been cleaned and treated for mould. You can see that the lincrusta has been removed (the panels around the window were later removed as well).

The work took longer than expected - 2 months, but now we know how it all fits together again we are making more rapid progress on the second compartment.

Hopefully the two first class compartments won't take very long as they have much less already fitted in them.

The second compartment is well underway having the mould treated. We are now at the stage of moving the second seat out of the way to treat that side, with the first seat base back in place.

The website is progressing and they are now aiming to make it public in early March, but certainly before the SVR Spring Gala.

Work has been progressing on the second compartment and removing the mould.
We had hoped that one panel of lincrusta could be saved, but when we tried the corners it became apparent that it too had been affected by water. On closer inspection we could see one or two bits had already disintegrated.
Once the decision was made this was the easiest panel to remove, confirming that water had got behind it and got trapped.
The other panel shown was also found to have some rot so has been removed and joins the growing list that will require replacement.
On the positive side we expect to have finished this compartment in the next couple of weeks then we can move onto the First Class compartments where, hopefully, there is much less to do.

Today is launch day for our revised website!

Sadly we were unable to resurrect the previous site but it was all backed up and we have taken the opportunity to move hosting to a new and cheaper provider with a better domain name too.

The revised website of the Barry Railway Carriage Trust is now live and ready for viewing. This is an updated version of the site developed from 2014 but hopefully is a much better resource than previously with more information and images.

It is intended to develop the site further over time to include the large photographic archive in the trust's possession covering not only the restoration of 163 but also the Barry Railway and its rolling stock.

The revised website can be found at:

www.barryrailwaycarriagetrust.org.uk
