Just 9 in on a very profitable day with some more milestones
However, we hadn't been going very long before
Eddie's latest wood delivery arrived, and with the new roadway going in we
had to use the emergency exit at the end of the Woodwork shop as the
entry point. Those little trolleys have been a godsend for moving
panelling, doors, sheet metal - anything large and flat.
Mentioning the roadway, the progress by midday.
Back to our work on TSO 4614 with Cheryl and Richard
doing the black of the upper and lower lines on the Malvern side.
With lining out completed (bar two missing doors),
it was out with the little brushes and round to the Cotswold side of
the coach to do the bits of tidying up.
In the Workshop it was a luggage rack cleaning
factory with four of the Tuesday gang hard at work.
From the large to the small. Keith was cleaning up the nuts
used for securing the luggage racks. Many were rusty, but once in
place in the coach they will be coated in silver Hammerite to blend
in with the alloy racks.
Racks cleaned and in the process of being
Job done with the interior of 4614 looking just that
bit more complete. Seats next hopefully to really bring it all
- It's frustrating to find that a very useful van for
storage has problems, but our Fruit C van in Platform 1 Bay has for some
time shown signs that some of the external plank work is in need of
replacement. lose inspection of the door bottoms is a good indication.
A look inside the van reveals the reported leakage
problems with quite a bit of the roof planking wet and even going mouldy.
Damp patches are also visible on the floor and the walls. All somewhat
annoying because we thought we had sorted out the roof leakage a few
years ago. We may end up bringing the van back into the Works.
Vivien from our Upholstery team was helping out with
seat repairs in Platform 2 waiting room.
And it's raining again!
Maurice takes over vacuuming the Paintshop floor.
It's amazing just how quick the floors become dusty even when there isn't
any sanding going on.
