An interesting day today, as we went to collect the reproduction GWR crowd barrier posts we have had made, using a clean example kindly lent to us by the SVR.
The visit to the foundry was an eye opener, and we were allowed to take some pictures:
Can Swan Foundry do anything else for us? Well, they could make us reproduction GWR platform lamp posts. These are very expensive second hand, and even more expensive from a specialist retailer. We are currently reflecting on a way to make use of their more affordable offer in a way that won't cost the railway any money. Watch this space if you are interested !
