Belmond British Pullman IONEBelmond British Pullman IONE
Tecforce is delighted to announce that it has completed overhaul of the bodywork of the IONE carriage from the prestigious and world famous Belmond British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Using our expertise in metallurgy, welding and bodywork repair the overhaul was completed to the high quality and care required for a unit of greater age and decoration. We stripped the carriage down to its structural shell and undertook a detailed assessment of condition, followed by a variety of intricate repairs to re-establish the full structural strength of the shell. The vehicle was then rebuilt using a mixture of original, and newly manufactured panels, window frames and gutters, with modern sealing and fixing methods whilst retaining the original character of the vehicle. A newly designed welded roof was installed for added water ingress integrity. The original and authentic roof furniture items were reinstated on the new roof and the whole vehicle treated with a coat of high protection primer ready for our client to apply finish livery. VAB approval was provided via an independent assessment. Successful completion of this work underlines Tecforce’s capability and knowledge of working on a varying range of bodyshell types and materials ...
