BR - CF - Wood supplies
This supply of timber will be used in the restoration of two waggons from the Bowes Railway that were almost destroyed in an arson attack by some mindless vandals in 2008.

The larger pieces at the front are green oak. and will become the underframes. The four largest sections were 6" x 12" and in two lengths and went to make up the underframe for the Drift Bogie. As green oak was very heavy, we were pleased that the dimensions for the grey waggon were a little smaller.

The larger stack at the rear is a durable softwood, Douglas Fir, in a range of sizes for the body planking.
