After a successful Test Run, JULIAN HEINEMANN, 11 January, 2020.
The Society owns a SR CCT (Southern Railway Covered Carriage Truck). This was purchased for use as a component store, but has now been restored by members of the Bluebell Railway Carriage and Wagon Department as a heritage item, to run on demonstration
goods trains and at special events. Again, with thanks from the Society; especially to the late Richard Maxwell, who re-instated all the mechanical gear, to make it 'a runner' again.
