Project 12

East Anglian Railway Museum (EARM)

We have recently completed the following three separate projects for the East Anglian Railway Museum (EARM):

Platform 5/6 – A platform exhibit at the museum to showcase the museum’s collection of platform furniture and buildings including a timber ticket office and a signal box. The platform also has track laid on both sides which gives the museum more space to exhibit their collection of restored train carriages. Cast iron columns salvaged from old stations were used in the design. The roof has been designed to allow for future expansion of the platform.

Restoration Shed – We were commissioned by the museum to design a new building to restore rolling stock. The restoration shed was to be constructed out of nearly new shipping containers with a lattice truss roof over. The containers were converted into storage spaces, workshops,  toilets and a canteen for the museum members. At first floor there was a public viewing balcony on three sides of the building for visitors to look at the trains from above. A glass station entrance salvaged from Crystal Palace Station was going to be added to one side of the restoration shed in a second phase. Planning and building regulation approvals were obtained but the client has decided not to let the building contract.

Locomotive Running Shed – The museum was given a locomotive for display and commissioned us to design a locomotive running shed using salvaged cast iron columns for an application for a  grant which they obtained.
