We are once again indebted to Sara Shrives of Stanegate Restorations for the following
photographs and captions. The news section of the web pages will continue to be updated
on a monthly basis.
NSR 127 - side module replaced
Slightly "arty" view of one side module, currently dry fitted.
NSR 127 - non-door end
View towards the end of th coach - repair were required to the lower sections only.
The corner modules at this end are next in line for repair.
NSR 127 - first corner module
That came out rather easily......hope the other three do the same. The carriage corner
post is alongside "on the bench" - both for inspection / assessment before starting
NSR 127 - grain filler
Age of the timber in this panel - and the weather - has required some grain filling
to produce a smooth surface for painting
NSR 127 - new door parts
Stack of components for the doors, the eight lower (bottom) rails are laid out ready
for the next operation - they are very complicated items........
NSR 127 - primer on panel
Applying primer to a panel of one of the side modules
NSR 127 - door part details
