Restoration Work begins at Ballater Railway Station

Work started today on the restoration of the stained glass windows in the Royal Waiting Room, Ballater Railway Station. The first phase of the project involves the removal and archiving of the existing glass.

The windows are badly damaged by smoke and heat, as well as by the fire services struggling to contain the fire. The temperature inside the room at the peak of the blaze was enough to melt the soldier on the lead joints and start it flowing down the windows.
