Old GWR Steam Shed Railings Reclaimed

RailingsReclaimedThe Vale of Berkeley Railway (VBR) are very fortunate to have been donated the railings, gates, some windows and columns from the old Great Western (GWR) Malvern Road Steam Shed in Cheltenham.

A team from VBR along with a lorry & staff from Moveright helped load the railings and equipment have gone into storage. VBR plan to use these railings in the future as part of the Sharpness Station restoration.
