Gunpowder van on demonstration with the Fireless Loco. An appropriate load for a wee engine with no fire !

This is the former LMS Inspection Saloon, which has been converted to passenger use. We hope to be able to use it later this year.

One of three basically similar steel mineral waggons which is undergoing restoration to full working condition. Welding almost complete.

Three of our Goods Vans, with  (from L to R) a Ventilated Van, a Johnnie Walker Van, and a Gunpowder Van.

Here are some of the standard gauge vehicles which form part of the ARPG Collection. You can see our Passenger Brakevan, which we currently use to provide short "hurls" along our demonstration track. Also shown here is our former LMS Inspection Saloon, which has been converted to passenger use, and which we hope to have in service this year. Some of our selection of Goods Vans are shown (including an unusual Johnnie Walker van). Finally, we have one of our mineral waggons, which a member has practically single-handedly rebuilt, and it is almost ready for repainting.
