The Keith and Dufftown Railway Association (KDRA) is working on a very exciting project – a dram tram! This week I went along to have a look at all the progress they have made the last couple of months.
With the ambition and hard work of the KDRA volunteers, an old carriage is being restored into a whisky-themed dram tram. Every detail has been carefully thought through. During the past months, a carpet has gone in, curtains have been tailored, lamps have been installed, and windows have been painted.
The most exciting addition is the custom-made barrel bar that has finally gone in! One of the volunteers, John, is about to make a bar lamp made out of copper pipes.
The dram tram will consist of three areas. There will be a whisky snug, suitable for whisky tastings. In the remaining areas there will be barrel-lidded tables and comfy leather seats. If you want to make a financial donation towards a table or seat, get in touch with the KDRA team. Once the dram tram is up and running, it is estimated that it will hold up to 30 people. It is an exciting addition to the KDRA fleet and we can’t wait to see the final result.
