News update – June 2013


The Items are shown on the bench at Foxfield prior to shipment to Stanegate.


Whilst Stanegate Restorations continues to make progress with the restoration of the body, the manufacture of door locks, handles & hinges has continued at Foxfield. The grab handles are still at the design stage at the moment and will be another costly item to reproduce.



Trust Engineer Dave Donkin has spent countless hours turning rough castings and fabrications into finished items of the highest standard.

The design of the middle hinges involved many hours of research, at length the butterfly hinge design accurately recreates the early design of hinge used by the NSR.
