ALL ABOARD THE 28.15 FROM ALOCIT

Who doesn't like a steam train? There is something magical that brings old locomotives to life and there are many groups of enthusiasts around Britain - and in other parts of the world - working hard to maintain the spirit and the machinery of days gone by.

THE GLOUCESTER WARWICKSHIRE RAILWAY (GWR)

One such group is the GWR, who have been working since 1981 to restore a section of the old Great Western Railway's route running through the Cotswolds. They have built new track, stations and a range of facilities and can now offer visitors a spectacular 25-mile trip pulled by a wide range of steam and diesel trains.

In the picture you can see the 7820 'Dinmore Manor' at the GWR Toddington Station. Also, in the background, is a 12,000 gallon (55,000 litre) tank - with its interior coated using a two-coat system of Alocit 28.15. Following the successful coating of this tank three years ago, the team at GWR are about to use Alocit again on a second tank. 

That's something else we like ... a satisfied customer!
