Just looking at the image in the news section of SVR Live, can I ask if the coach rakes ( particularly the maroon set that does tend to have a decent coat of grime) are in fact put through the carriage washing plant on the road behind the carriage shed, or is there a problem using this piece of kit?

I don't know, but wonder if the recent pway works that fully connecting the diesel shed took CS6 out of use for a time?

On a more general basis carriage washers (on the big railway too) clean coaches, but there seems to be a steady deterioration in cleanliness over time.

The narrative that I copied and pasted into SVRLive suggests that this is a trial to see if a heavy clean and wax prolongs time between the need to clean or paint, and revarnish.

The general impression I have is that the carriage washer gets the surface dirt off but if it's ingrained or the varnish has degraded, it requires further work.

It is worth showing the link to the images from SVRLive as the before and after heavy clean / wax treatment differences are significant. Concerns BR buffet SC1855.

Confirmed elsewhere as being the case. That work was finished a week ago or so
