my dad (8hbob on here)has spent 3 years rebuilding/restoring his brake van from a fire damaged chassis, it finally did its first run yesterday.it still needs some work but it was good to see it in service after all his hard work!i have been helping him over the last month to get it ready for a steam gala at llangollen railway and went on the first trip with it.
