Old railway carriages as homes in Caldecote

Railway carriages

Railway carriages

Many of the early occupants of Highfields lived in old railway carriages. Some such as the shop (by what is now Uniplum) were old Pullman coaches. Others were the more old everyday type coaches such as those in the photos here. They were extremely well built made of good quality wood such as teak and mahogany. The ones in the picture here though are still on a railway and are awaiting restauration back to their original form.
