Carriage No.5 Update

One of our members, Andrew Lowe, recently sent this message together with some photos taken during an organised visit to Boston Lodge:

"Last Saturday 9th June I enjoyed an excellent day on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway travelling on the Snowdonian Limited with two other L&B Trust members Robert and Heather Cross. On the Friday evening we were given a tour of Boston Lodge works, and saw the progress with the frames for L&B carriage No.5. Here are three pictures that members may be interested in seeing."

Also, here is some video from the FR, showing the underframe

Some of you may have been anticipating the arrival in North Devon of Carriage No. 5 in time for our September Gala. Just to let you know - at the last Trust meeting, it was decided not to rush the carriage construction. Consequently, it will now be making its debut at next year's May Gala. Something to look forward to.
