Working on the deck

This last week my mate Andrew Browne came over from Sydney to help me get the deck finished. He worked alone through the week while I was at work and managed to get all the subframe sorted ready for a joint onslaught on Saturday. By COB on Saturday we managed to get most of the decking laid and the palings up around the outside. Still need to sort out some finishing touches and add the stairs at the western end but we're getting there!

And, on another note, if you have lusted after Clarabelle and wanted a similar carriage for yourself, here's your chance. The Mary Valley Heritage Railway is selling off some of their excess stock, including 1071, a sister carriage to mine. Details here:

I would love to buy another one of these but do not have the time, money or location to look after it. Besides, there are only so many carriages in a loving wife's life that she can stand!

If perchance you do go ahead and buy one of these carriages, stay in touch and let me know how you go with it. It's a lot of fun if you're into this kind of thing!
