Foamalux Brings Life Back to Vintage Train

Foamalux Vintage Train Refurb

Signmaker John Diffey, bought a 1916 Great North of Scotland Railway carriage body, with the aim of bring it back to life and to showcase the beauty of the vintage carriage.

This stunning application demonstrates the workability and diverse use of Foamalux White Foam PVC sheet.

The 8mm thick Foamalux White PVC panels were easily bent to the curved profile of the train’s carriage and were secured with stainless steel countersunk screws. The facials were cut with a hand router using templates and were secured with brass pins.

Foamalux was also used for the window frames, the roof strip and the dummy ventilators.

In November 2016, the Vintage Carriage celebrated its centenary and was awarded a commendation design award from the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.

Foamalux White, a bright white signage and printing substrate is available in 1-24mm as part of the extensive Foamlaux range, which also features vibrant colours, high gloss finish and a black recycled core and co-extruded white surface. Foamalux provides infinite capabilities, and processes with ease to provide an exceptional finish whatever the requirement.
