Railway Projects Ltd in partnership with Northern Rail and Eureka Children’s Museum

The national children’s museum Eureka, have restored an old MarkII coach that would have been built circa 1969 by British Rail at Derby Carriage works. Two teams headed up by Railway Project Limited’s Operations Manager Simon Chorley undertook the refurbishment work over a four week period.

Prior to Christmas the carriage was stripped and corrosion repairs made with the proceeding two weeks of refit and refurbishment. The scope of this project involved corrosion repairs, weather proofing and re paint of the outside of the vehicle, with the refresh and refurbishment of the interior including but not limited to replacement windows, re paint, new dado panels, seat covers, carpet, tables and refreshed panelling.

RPL were presented with a framed photograph of the finished vehicle by Northern Rails Managing Director Heidi Mottram and Eureka’s Chief Executive Leigh-Anne Stradeski with the words “Thank you for your fantastic support in refurbishing the Northern Rail at Eureka! Children’s train carriage.”
