Community Investment Manager, Neal Allison, from construction company Osborne rescued the train, which was due to be dismantled and thrown away before it was given to Frederic Street Pre-School in Walthamstow Forest.
PHS Contractors helped to give a new leash of life to the train, which was finished in Sadolin Superdec to create a bright exterior that is protected from bad weather conditions during the year.
Neal said: The play train was going to be skipped as it was in a poor state, but we thought it might be ideal for the children at Frederic Street. It was a real team effort, with people from all four companies coming together to provide these children with some fantastic play equipment.
