Standard Gwynne ‘Chariot’ restoration

We have been doing a lot of work on the Standard Gwynne ‘Chariot’ trailer. (Well, actually, paying others to do a lot of it…).

It is rather a rare trailer, and so beautiful that it is worth spending some money on.

We dismantled it, had it caustic-dipped, painted the smaller parts, and had the main part welded. Still to come is to make a new side panel (with the complex rolled curved top), then paint it all. Hope it will be ready for the coming season.

I am a director of a small (and very technical) business, a committed Christian, a Reader (and preacher) in my local village church, husband to my dear Frances, am interested in heritage railways, and heritage fire engines. I currently run a group that displays wartime and early post-war fire engines at 1940s re-enacting events and steam engine rallies. O yes, and vintage cars and motorbikes, and we live in a Victorian railway station.
