Damaged wagon goes for repair at Middleton Railway

Following the fire at Jewson’s adjacent to the Middleton Railway in July 2018, a number of items on the railway were fire damaged.

The worst case was a covered van, known as a PALVAN, which was burned out and all its contents destroyed.  The Middleton Railway has now been able to send this vehicle away to specialist contractors for a full overhaul and return to service.

The photograph by MRT member Cedric Wood shows the damaged vehicle leaving our premises for its journey to Stanegate Restorations in the North East.
