Anderson Carriage & Wagon

Welcome to Anderson Carriage & Wagon! We restore, repair, inspect, paint, refurbish, test and supply spares to historic carriages and wagons, from wooden Victorian 6-wheelers right up to more modern steel-bodied Mk1 and Mk2 carriages used by many Heritage Railways today.

We are based in Yorkshire but can travel from our base to any part of the country should you require our services, which can range from graffiti removal to heavy general repairs and complete overhauls and refurbishment. We can also collect stock and refurbish at our base and then return it to your base should this be required.

We specialise in the restoration of carriages and wagons; this is the core of our business. However we have undertaken work on locomotives occasionally too - such as bodywork welding.
