Wednesday 26th

Another good turn out with 19 willing workers.

The door team had a good day with that centre door from CK 7221 cleaned up and two compartment door now looking spic and span. 
















Also on show was their handy work at putting a complete new frame in one of SO 4790's door frame. Sorry no picture of this but what I could see did look good. It was the wrong way up from a photo point of view.


The door trimming on the RBr has also progressed but we still need a bit more work on the wall side centre doors. Also apparent was some extensive panelling in the corridor past the kitchen. Well done everybody.

I am pleased tom see work on 7221 progressing. It is one of very few CK's remaining which still has the complete ambulance window in one of the compartments. This was to allow casualties on stretchers to be lifted through the window. I wonder if it was ever actually used for this purpose. It will be an intersting restoration job.
