'TO OPEN WINDOW
PUT HANDLE IN FREE POSITION
AND PULL DOWN WINDOW'

The interior of the brake van of 6686 looking towards the end. Although the bright colours look as if this has been the result of a "Changing Rooms" type makeover the colours are authentic. Move your mouse over the picture to see what the various items in it are for.

Guard John Phillips is in charge of the train whilst the gentleman in the orange overalls leaning out of the window is Chris Cooper. It is Chris and his team that the Bluebell Railway and its passengers have to thank for the exceptional condition in which the coaches are presented, week after week after week.
