The Little Red Train Carriage

When I came across this old 1969 Queensland Rail workers van, it was lying in an overgrown field with the roof partially collapsed. A friend of mine had been hoping to live in it before a huge dead tree fell on it and halted her plans. I dragged the carriage – all 14 tonnes of it – out of the muddy paddock and moved it to a friend’s property where I worked on it for six months.” – Matthew de Boer via Small House Bliss

  1. I could easily live in this little home! I grew up next to the Erie-Lackawanna railroad and love all things train.

    It is adorable.

    1. Thanks for your kind comments. Yes running water in the kitchen, as well as a stovetop, and power throughout. If you’d like to see more photos, check out the Little Red Train Carriage fb page.
