Overhauls and Maintenance

There’s plenty going on at M Shed at the moment. Henbury is in the shed being dismantled for overhaul.

If you are visiting M Shed and would like to make a donation to help Henbury steam again, there is a donation box in front of the viewing window. All donations are welcome!

The TOAD brake van, meanwhile, is outside the workshop receiving new boards and a lick of paint on the door.

Much further down the line, Ashton Avenue Bridge is inside its cocoon, being repaired for use by MetroBus.

  1. What’s the gen behind the story in the Railway Magazine that subsidence has been discovered on the Cumberland Road branch?

    • Hi Simon, I’m afraid I haven’t personally seen the article. I do know that the New Cut (the man made channel that diverts the River Avon) has always had a very large tidal reach. This causes a lot of pressure on the banks at high tide, which then disappears at low tide. M Shed volunteers and staff have been monitoring any potential subsidence on the bank over the past few years, and a temporary speed restriction has been in place in one section.
      I will update as and when I have any further information.
      Thanks
