It’s here – new carriage arrival!
At 7:30am the engineering staff arrived onsite to ensure the delivery went smoothly and the meet the crane required to lift the carriage onto the track.
As 8:00am arrived, to our shock, the carriage didn’t! As we wondered where it could be somebody jokingly said, “I bet it has got stuck in the road works just outside the village”. Either way the carriage finally arrived after 9:00am. Onlookers were amazed by the vivid carmine red livery and intricate detailing of the wood and metal work.
Lifting the carriage onto the tracks was efficiently completed in less than one hour.
Over the next week to ten days our fitters onsite will be fitting the guard rail, calibrating the automated brakes, applying decals and then commissioning will begin for the carriage to be ready for the 1st May 2015.
