Of course there is still a lot of top coating to do!
Similarly 25341 got a lot of paint today.
Alex on half term
by the end of the day the cream first coat was complete
Inside work was under way to tidy up and repair the seating
on removal of one of the arm rest panels John discovered the hidden handy work of a previous restorer. come on own up!
a rather nice pony, a bridge and a cornice.
Pete Fisher was working on weld patching a rather difficult section of the ballast wagon and its not good metal to work with.
while John Osborn was working on the corner of 4787 now out in the barn.
while Roger and Ron continued there battle replacing the final windows. the top trim rail was causing issues but I think they are winning.
Ben joined me in working on the new finishing shop by starting the varnishing of the doors.
Roger Bush was completing the installation of the charging circuits on 25341. it s rather nicer to do it in the workshop than out on the track side! so he takes the opportunity when possible.
An unusual sight, Robin painting standing up. He is usually on his knees painting round seats. So this was rare treat that he took full advantage of. first sanding then top coating a whole series of panelling sections.
Michael took over the sanding table for some work on trim strips.
Despite the low number we made some important steps forward today.
