Commissions Set in the Open at Thirlmere - FOE Media Release and Photos

On 30th September 2007 RailCorp authorised the movement from the protection of Eveleigh’s Large Erecting Shop of the Commissioners carriages. These carriages are two of the states most valuable heritage carriages and are listed on the State Heritage Register. A week later with their roof now peeling, the carriages are sitting at Thirlmere in the open. A combination of sitting outdoors in the heat and wind of the last week and a RailCorp decision not to replace the skin in an overhall three years ago has lead to the damage. The Friends of Eveleigh have issued a media release with photos of the peeling carriages and some background on this latest RailCorp Heritage fiasco. File is 102 KB PDF.
