Railway Carriage ‘Gwen’

Railway Carriage ‘Gwen’

‘Gwen’, built in 1932 for the ‘Brighton Belle’, was withdrawn in 1972. After serving as a restaurant in Essex, she was displayed at the Colne Valley Railway and finally acquired by VSOE in 1988.

After a long period of restoration, she joined the ‘British Pullman’ service in 1999.
