2426 Churchward Toplight Third - Restoration

The 1910 built toplight third 2426 is now resident at Bewdley. The roof has been covered and broken windows replaced. It is being converted to act as a workshop for 5043 and a varnish shop for us. It needs substantial structual reapair and we have made a start on the north end. Parts are being made such as door locks and commode handles. It is mounted on 8 foot American bogies and drawings are slowly being found to aid restoration which should follow on from 4786.
