The replica Ashbury carriage under construction (Photo: Tony Champkins)A recent project created a replica of a 4-wheeled Ashbury carriage although the Group was not directly involved with funding this. None of the originals survived into the preservation era and the last were used as station buildings on the Welsh Highland Railway. The replica was financed from funds left over from the building of the single Fairlie, Taliesin.
