SUMMARY - Work has been ongoing to refurbish the TSO (Tourist Second Open) Mk2A coach in the Milton head shunt.
The refurbishment works are now effectively complete, with the 'fitness to run' testing in progress.
Once the testing of the coach has been completed satisfactorily, it is hoped to have it operating in a three coach train with two other MkII coaches at the railway. This would be a 'first' for the Deeside railway, since it ceased operating under the auspices of British Rail over 50 years ago.
The railway logo is now in place
Detailed lettering as per coach spec is complete
Detailing of the paintwork is being finalised
