Railway Carriage To Buy !!LINK!!

The objective of this study was to further clarify the cancer risk associated with asbestos exposure in railway carriage construction and repair. The cohort included 734 subjects employed between 1 January 1945 and 31 December 1969. Vital status was ascertained at 31 December 1997. Mortality was investigated in the time span 1970-97. Forty-two subjects (6%) were lost to follow-up and eight causes of death (4%) could not be ascertained. The overall mortality was not above the expected value. Among neoplastic diseases, excesses were observed for lung ştandardized mortality ratio (SMR) = 124; 90% confidence interval (CI) = 87-172; 26 obs), pleura (SMR = 1,327; CI = 523-2,790; 5 obs), larynx (SMR = 240; CI = 95-505; 5 obs), liver (SMR = 241; CI = 126-420; 9 obs), pancreas (SMR = 224; CI = 98-443; 6 obs) and multiple myeloma (SMR = 429; CI = 117-1,109; 3 obs). The observed excess of lung and pleural neoplasms can be causally related to asbestos exposure in the manufacture of railway carriages. A causal role of asbestos exposure in the raised SMRs from laryngeal and pancreatic neoplasms and multiple myeloma cannot be conclusively proven.

A railroad car, railcar (American and Canadian English),[a] railway wagon, railway carriage, railway truck, railwagon, railcarriage or railtruck (British English and UIC), also called a train car, train wagon, train carriage or train truck, is a vehicle used for the carrying of cargo or passengers on a rail transport network (a railroad/railway). Such cars, when coupled together and hauled by one or more locomotives, form a train. Alternatively, some passenger cars are self-propelled in which case they may be either single railcars or make up multiple units.

The term "car" is commonly used by itself in American English when a rail context is implicit. Indian English sometimes uses "bogie" in the same manner,[1] though the term has other meanings in other variants of English. In American English, "railcar" is a generic term for a railway vehicle; in other countries "railcar" refers specifically to a self-propelled, powered, railway vehicle.

In standard-gauge railway cars, seating is usually configured into ranges from three to five seats across the width of the car, with an aisle in between (resulting in arrangements of 2+1, 2+2 or 3+2 seats) or at the side. Tables may be provided between seats facing one another. Alternatively, seats facing in the same direction may have access to a fold-down ledge on the back of the seat in front.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union fielded a number of trains that served as mobile missile silos. These trains carried the missile and everything necessary to launch, and were kept moving around the railway network to make them difficult to find and destroy in a first-strike attack. A similar rail-borne system was proposed in the United States of America for the LGM-30 Minuteman in the 1960s, and the Peacekeeper Rail Garrison in the 1980s, but neither were deployed.[9]

Mr Harris said the hardest part of the process can be actually getting a carriage out of the field and sometimes he has to cut the carriages up even though putting them back together can be back breaking work.

And so we dedicate this little book to the anniversary of the joining of the rails of the first transcontinental railway across the United States, 150 years ago today at Promontory Summit, Utah Territory.

Two old London Brighton & South Coast Railway carriages have been restored to traffic after 68 and 80 years out of use, and another two are currently being restored. All four were recovered after more than half a century as dwellings, and have been mounted on suitably modified underframes.

The Carriage Exhibition at Horsted Keynes is well worth a visit, and includes a viewing gallery in the carriage works, at the south end of platform 5. Donations collected are now being put towards the eventual overhaul of the SR Maunsell Restaurant car No.7864, and the provision of more urgently needed overhead cover for our carriage stock.On Platform 1 at Horsted Keynes, the Carriage Shop sells various items, including a large range of books, to raise funds for carriage restoration.

A rake of carriages was hired in 1963 to cover for the Chesham Set being sent to Neasden for the centenary of the Metropolitan Railway. These were Bulleid Brake Composite S6714S, Mk.1 TSO S4381, Bulleid Open Third S1495S, Bulleid Open Third S1473S, Mk.1 TSO S4014 and Mk.1 48-seat Open Second (later reclassified as Open First) S3504. None of these vehicles entered preservation. S3504 was used to supplement the Sheffield Park Buffet seating prior to the arrival of Maunsell 1365.

Security labels can be custom printed with logo, unique numbering and barcoding. The security label shown below, reveals an open message on the label face, but no adhesive is left on the surface it has been applied to when removed. Ideal for rail carriage door sealing.

David in Hadleigh was quick to respond to Lesley Dolphin's coverage on BBC Radio Suffolk to let us know that he still lives in two of the carriages in Hadleigh, whilst John in Southwold uses one as a fishing shed.

R. NewtonI have a old railway carriage at the bottom of our garden, it was in poor condition when we puchased the property, i have since repaired it and filled it with various bygone items, unfortunetly i dont know the history of it, but it does appear on the deeds to our house dating back to around the 1900s. Situated next to the poppy line just out of norwich

Andy longridgeYes I lived and was brought up as a boy in railway carriage home. The two carriages are still there and lived in.My bedroom was second class. Great memories.This was in Gloucestershire. We were out in the countryside with no neighbours,just great,what old England was like. We got mains water and electric put on in 1958 and our first television in 1963. I still go and visit this place and sleep in my long gone grandmothers bedroom.The smells are just the same. Sadly I,ve got to go, all the best

Bernie WardYes there were three old railway carriages at "Thorpeness Halt" station which formed the parcells office, booking office and waiting room.Stn was closed 1966, carriages burnt.Am writing booklet about station.

Norman VingoeThere's a bungalow on Magdalen Road, Tilney St. Lawrence, Norfolk, which was built around a railway carriage. The bungalow is relatively recent - about 1970 maybe.The bungalow still stands, but the carriage body was removed maybe 20 years ago.(Google Earth 52,41'37N, 0,17'59E)

R BurgessI am a history/landscape archaeology researcher in Cambridge working on railway houses in norfolk ; particularly used as summerhouses at areas around Gt. Yarmough (hemsby, scratby etc.) If you have knowledge of these (perhaps in existance today) please contact

John DunthorneMy wife and I own a carriage identical to these on a site at Snape, Suffolk. Sadly it will have to be moved shortly and is available free of charge to anyone who can organise its removal. If interested see our community paper Ebb 'n' Flow.

ann connellWhilst looking for a property to buy recently I was sent details of a "bungalow" as described. It is 2 railway carriages side by side with a 15' gap between them, all enclosed in a bungalow frame, It is sited near Yoxford.

StephenMy mother grew up in a bungalow in Yoxford (near Darsham) on the Westleton Road built around old train carriages. I believe my Uncle and Auntie still live there - you could clearly see the insides of the carriages in the bungalow, but from the outside looked like a normal bungalow.

Dave WhitingRailway carriage homes were quite a common site around Leiston when I was growing up. There used to be one or two on the road leading to Blackheath Corner at Knodishall where I believe my father Sam Whiting was born in 1916. I think there were also some near the Thorpeness Halt on the Saxmundham to Aldeburgh railway line.

J Martin FISKEMy life commenced in 1927 in an ex-railway carriage, home to my parents at March in Cambridgeshire. The Whitemoor marshalling yards nearby must have been a noisy background for my parents to tend my early life, as they moved to Cambridge soon afterwards! As this is my eightieth year, the health aspect was clearly no problem, but the carriages must have been long gone, probably then in Whitemoor Road. It would be interesting to hear from anyone in that district.

This railway carriage was part of the old Waverley Line which shut in 1969, with many of the old carriages being bought by local farmers and used for storage such as this one. The Borders Railway returning at that time was just a dream but of course it is now a reality and we are fortunate to have one of the original carriages on our farm which we intend to develop into a luxurious property for two with stunning views.
