The GW(SVR)A is nearing the end of its restoration of 9103 which should enter service at the beginning of 2011. Our next vehicle will be the distinctive art deco coach 650 which is an open coach with 40 seats and an attractive interior. In order to make quick progress we hope to make use of the new contract facility at Bewdley to make the outside water tight so that our volunteer team can carry on with the interior in the dry! We have already overhauled the bogies and brake gear and have the distinctive lamps on order.
Accordingly we are appealing for financial donations to help with the initial weatherproofing. This will complete the basic body framing repairs, seal the roof and reseal the windows. Please donate by completing the apeal form or make a regular donation see http://www.gw-svr-a.org.uk/650_appeal.html
Many thanks Mick Haynes

The re-panelled west side is pretty well complete and the new roof edge is also in place. Work has now begun on the east side with repairs to the top cant rail and knee irons. All the panels have been removed and some are even reusable!

The SVR Guarantee Board has approved a request for support towards GW(SVR)A Collett open brake third 650’s ongoing east side repair, so should allow completion of bodywork and repanelling of the east side and ends.

GWR Collett open brake third 650... There has been good progress on 650 over the last month. The exterior has been painted in all over brown and the ends black ready to go outside in the New Year. The floor is down in the saloon, the Guard’s van and the Luggage van and is almost ready in the two toilets and the south end vestibules. The main frame has been cleaned and painted. Next we plan to begin on the interior of the Guards Van rebuilding the electrical cupboard. © GW(SVR) Association

I note that 650 has been turned out in all-over brown, pending internal completion. Is this goingto be the final livery, or is this temporary and will be repainted in full chocolate & cream. I know that full brakes were all-over brown, as were other non-passenger carrying vehicles designed to run in passenger trains (such as the milk brake and siphons), but I wasn't aware of anypassenger vehicles painted thus.

I don't know, but I infer from its "protective brown paint scheme" that it's temporary

Whilst I believe that it will eventually carry chocolate and cream, during WW2 some carriages were turned out in all over brown, and it was the GWR's general livery for all passenger vehicles from 1908 to 1912 when Crimson lake was introduced (obviously that's a bit early for 650!).
