30/4/2020: SNCV trailer A.1584, progress of its restoration

Dear all,

The SNCV trailer A.1584 is now complete and ready for the final step: painting, coat of arms, etc.

Click here for a slide show of the restoration

A professional painter has started by March 10th to prepare the car for its final paintwork.
The first coat of primer was painted by the evening of March 18th.
The platform roofs were painted by March 24th.
The platform panels were painted by March 26th.
The final coat of “vicinal cream” was tested by April 15th and will be finished by April 18th.

The trailer is on long term loan to The Liège Transport museum. A programme of exceptional runs will be coordinated with the TTA line / Tramway Touristique de l’Aisne, owner of the car.

A little bit of patience in order to admire this trailer, unique in Belgium, by its age and technology.

Liège Musée des Transports. SNCV trailer A.1584. The paintwok of the body is finished. Date: 30-4-2020
