The Mid Hants Railway has released an update on the wagons that are found at the railway.

At Medstead, work has progressed on BY S 653. The external finishing on the roof is nearly complete. Internally, the roof and sides are being cleaned and painted. The vac piping is now being installed.

The welding on the gunpowder van sides and the roof are completed, and the underframe and exterior are being painted. There is some internal woodworking to do to secure the roof.

The wood store plans have been drawn up. A start on a base has been made. A start has been made on the repainting of the maroon CCT, starting on the underframes.

At Alton, LSWR bogie S 57849 is now in top coat.

Work is progressing on Palvans B 782114 and B 776446, both need loose paint scrapping off, filling, sanding, priming, undercoating etc. The steel is fine, and hopefully, the team can start some top coating in the next week or two.
