Today's range was as wide as ever.
Jenny, abandoned by the rest of the upholstery team, soldiered on with the covering of 2 more seats.
Malcolm, having retired from the roof painting, has found a more comfortable occupation and a nice seat for the job as well. By the end of the day all of the sub frame of the LMS Brake van was nicely painted black.
In the paintshop Trevor and Alan were continuing the sanding and filling
They were later joined by Rod who started on the north end.
Progress on 4614 is good with Nick making and welding the brackets for the sliding north end door. I later drilled all the bolt holes for the floor battens to be fixed in place.
Eddie and Colin cut a set of new curved wood sections for the door liners
while Paul fixed a new bottom rail to one of the doors
and Mike refitted the lock to another of the doors.
Also emerging from the woodwork team were a set of widow frame edge strips which were duly given a coat of protecting varnish
Among the thing that just appear for the team to work on were a pair of chairs for the friends of Winchcombe group. Dave Ward set about regluing the frame
The other chair already glued and clamped while the glue sets.
There was also some more rodding for S&T that needed attention. Acquiring parts to rebuild things, in this case the signal box at Broadway, has its drawbacks. Like the parts are often not the right size so they get sent over for the length to be adjusted.
Out in the barn work on bogies continued. This was one very stuck axle box. John and Ken eventually got it to move..... but only a few inches. It is now stuck in another position but any movement is good with these things. Its called progress but there is still some more work to do on this one.
