Work Starts On VBR Brake Van

With the 03 shunter having been completed and left the shed, this has freed up space for the Vale of Berkeley Railway to start work on restoring it’s BR Brake Van, No. B954990. The brake van was built in the 1950’s and used in the eastern region. Structurally the vehicle is in reasonable condition but will need it’s springs and axles overhauled as well as a lot of the wood work being renewed. For details on how to help with this project please contact Frank Woolridge.
