Queen Anne has now moved (under her own power) into the Carriage Shed for painting. She is currently in primer.
|Primer paint applied
The last time Queen Anne moved under her own power was somewhere around 35 years ago. The first test runs were carried out recently in the yard at Aviemore.
Only a few minor adjustments were required. The brakes needed tightening up and the clutch spring for first gear needed adjustment.
A short video of the first moves has been produced :-
An initial load test was also carried out and a coach was pulled in and out of the carriage shed without any problems.
