The door.

By franken
Another from my archives.

There's a private railway company in Barry that do the usual vintage steam trips etc.

It changed hands a few years ago and this was taken before then in a shed full of rusting steam engines and old carriages. (They had open days)

I've no idea as to what state the carriage is currently in?

I was drawn to the bright colours of the paint that must have been applied a very long time ago?

More from the shed may follow?

Excellent exposure showing the rust and decay that scars this old carriage. Hard to imagine that when the restoration gang get working on this it will be better than new. I do admire those guys.

In many ways an extremely emotive image, the red and flaking paint playing the leading role in the murder series.
