I've scoured the web and have come up empty for pictures and information on Adrian Shooter's reproduction parlour car, Rangeley, called "Carrabassett." If any of you gents can provide a link (or photos) we'd be most appreciative.
Thanks!
Stephen

I'll try and find some of the postings I made to the Leica e-group when Carrabasset was built

On a visit to the WW&F a couple of years ago, Adrian left a whole set of wonderful pictures of the Carrabasset on the Festiniog and on his back yard railroad, including interior shoots. His wife also told us of how she had gathered interior fixtures and designed the interior.
Some day I hope to follow up on his invite to dinner on the car!
The pictures should all be in the Archives  - and I also kept a set.

Thank you, John.

The car depicted in the "We just built another one" link was under construction when we got our Boston Lodge tour.  I'd say it turned out real nice.
I'll repeat that when the WW&F grows up, I want us to be like the Ffestiniog in our quality and ability of workmanship.

The pictures that Allan has referred to are in the archives and available for viewing. They are gorgeous...
