Restoring an old Queensland Railway carriage and collecting memorabilia from Queensland Rail to finish the job. The carriage is number 1072, an Evan's Car used in Brisbane suburban services from 1924 through to 1990. Your thoughts, contributions and comments are welcome!

Intermittend heavy showers meant some restrictions on what I could do this weekend but I was able to get a set of drawers installed. Most of the time was spent carefully setting up the side walls that the runners are mounted on - they have to be just right for the drawers to work properly.
The drawers themselves are kits from Bunnings and I hate the white draw fronts. In time I will replace them with something bespoke that fits into the design of the rest of the kitchen but, for now, these will have to do.
Also managed to run the gas supply for the stove out through the floor so that the gas bottle is now outside the carriage and started to set up some blocks for the sliding waste bin to stand on.
Next weekend I'll be on the carriage by myself staying overnight so I should have much more to report next week!
