Sam is currently working on making some new carriages for our Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway display. The aim is to construct 3 or 4 new carriages, they will be a lighter version of the old ones, this will make it a lot easier on the motor used in this interactive display. The old carriages are made of brass which means they are heavy and take more time to repair as they need to be stripped back properly in order to be able to re solder a break. Fibreglass will allow a lot faster turnaround time for repairs and which means more time for our patrons to play with this interesting display. Sam is anticipating approximately 60 hrs will go into making each carriage.
How It All Began14 Dec 2018
It was 10 o’clock on Saturday morning November 3, 1979. For the Sarah family of Canberra, this was no ordinary Saturday morning – it was life changing. The extent of that change was unknown. It was as unknown as the extent of success or otherwise of the new venture they were just about to embark upon. Text
