New Historic Carriage Shed for GCR

The Charnwood Borough Council have been approached by Vehicle Preservations Ltd for a four - road shed to be erected at Swithland Sidings.

The article goes on to explain that the shed will give all round protection to its historic coaches thereby saving further damage by the elements and cut down on routine maintenance to spend that time saved on further restoration work to 'new' projects.

In first instance to purely protect but later perhaps to allow visitors and dove-tail into the proposed Railway Museum at leicester North.

An extremely well thought out inexpensive and cost effective scheme I thought.
