Charles Summers (Trustee) reports steady progress continues at Friday Wood Farm in Essex thanks to the East Group.

Van 23 woodwork is now substantially complete, in store and ready for assembly on the new chassis when it has been finished and delivered.

The team has now turned its attention to preparing reclaimed timber from the Ipswich Church for use in the reconstruction of open observation carriage number 9.

Any Members from Essex or Suffolk who want to try their hand at Carriage building phone me on 01268-695193.
(all jobs needed including tea maker!)
