The Grey Brakevan
Ex LMS Standard 20 Ton Brakevan M731299 is one of this year's winter projects, with the intention to restore the vehicle to full working condition, so that it may be able to enter into passenger carrying service. The Group hopes to restore the van retaining as much of the original woodwork as possible., and to this end, work has already commenced in stripping down the various timber sections to determine which may be recovered in the restoration.
Once restored, it will allow the Group the opportunity to offer a genuine brakevan experience to complement the current passenger brakevan.
Currently, Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group has working members on site at Dunaskin on Saturdays and Tuesdays. Anyone wishing to help out need only contact the Group :
- telephone Archie Thom, on 01292 269 260 (re Saturday Workdays)
- telephone Andy Arnot, on 01292 443 652 (re Tuesday Workdays)
