Rhiw Goch Recladding

20 August 2015

The team at Rhiw Goch

Ffestiniog Railway Society Chairman Howard Wilson was one of a team recently at Rhiw Goch helping to replace some of the wooden cladding on the signalbox.

The signalbox was constructed in 2007 in a traditional style, to replace the 1970s original building. In the fairly harsh environment on the exposed hillside, some of the cladding proved not to be up to the task and required replacement.

To be able to replace the cladding, some scaffolding was put up around the signalbox. This gave the opportunity for some interesting views of the passing trains….
