Trailer No.54 Restoration Gallery » Trailer No.54, June 2018

June 2018

It has been necessary to remove the end panels which has revealed some interesting “doodles” on the rear. One piece says “F Connan Foreman Fitter” and the other repeats the name and also says “MER For Scenery”, which was the former wording of the large illuminated sign above Derby Castle Depot. Trailer 54 was fitted with bulkhead ends in the winter of 1937/38 so does the writing date from then or a later repair. Does anyone recall Mr Connan? © Andrew Scarffe
