62385 Undergoing Interior Refresh & Repaint…

MBSO 62385 of 1399 is currently undergoing a full repaint and interior refresh. Work includes maintenance to the vehicle body, sealing of the guttering, repaint of the roof, bodysides, solebar and bogie frames/detail.

The brake van area has also been cleared of prop furniture since this was surplus to requirements following its film contract use. The brake van doors have also been reinstated.

Internally, every piece of wood panelling in the corners of all windows and between seating bays will be replaced, including brand new upholstered cheek panels. It will be replaced with plywood, high quality upholstery foam and non-woollen moquette. This is to combat severe rot encouraged by the original hardboard/fibreboard and pure wool moquette.

A quantity of the new panels have been treated with clear varnish to further repel water & condensation.
