Welcome to SRPS C&W Department

LNER open wagon This site is run by Don Clarke, a volunteer at the SRPS. On this site there is a lot of information about the electrical aspects of coaching stock, the Carriage and Wagon Department restoration and renovation activities, a picture gallery including ALL the LNER pacifics and a section on BVE, the Japanese authored train simulator for the PC for which Don has written some routes - Edinburgh to Aberdeen and the Bo'ness and Kinneil branch.


Volunteer Appeal



We need more volunteers in Carriage and Wagon. We are all getting older and need a new wave of personnel to whom we can pass on our skills and knowledge to maintain the pace of carriage and wagon restoration at Bo'ness. There is a long queue of vehicles for restoration as well as the Branchline and Railtour carriage sets to maintain. We are on site Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Please drop me a line (to the address near the bottom of the page) if you think you can help at all. Only basic DIY skills are needed - we will help you take it from there!


Ancient Graffiti



When John Forrest was de-scaling this wagon prior to repainting, lettering and numbering, he came upon this rather amusing picture which must have been painted around the time the wagon was constructed - late 1940s.
