Embsay carriage shed extension completed


THE Embsay & Bolton Abbey Railway’s 40m extension to its carriage shed at Embsay has been completed by Spanlite UK Ltd.

The new structure is formed of plastisol-coated steel panels over a galvanised-formed steel frame, and almost doubles the length of the original 50m shed.
