What are a group of painters called?
It appears to be a swarm because they were swarming all over 5023 today.
all helping to complete the first top coat.
name the song:
12 wheel chocks hanging on the wall
8 varnished tables
Loads of nice clean seasting
One more seat is drying
Robin still a sanding
and Alan busy banging.
In all Phil fitted ropes to the newly made chocks and hung them ready for use. We decided not to paint them.
Robin lined up, cleaned up and varnished all the little window tables.
Ron, Roger and Alan fitted the seats that Paul has already cleaned while Paul continued the cleaning process. Alan was also repairing the lock on the toilet tank cupboard door.
Perhaps the nicest picture for Robin was him painting the table legs.
Usually he has to lay on his back or side and crawl under the tables to paint the legs.
This was a real treat for him.
Richard and John Hamer started refitting the glass for the toilet windows in 3132, they were missing.
John Hamer was also working on the bogies again, repositioning liners ready for re-welding.
Richard and I also helped to remove the springs and clean up the spacers that fit above and below the springs. These set the ride height of the bogies and thus the buffer heights.
Another area where there are clearly defined measurements to be meet.
Malcolm started the day painting the centre section of the roof of 3132 before moving into the barn and starting the removal of loose paint from the roof of 25743.
I did the two side of 3132's roof.
It gets very hot at this height in the workshop
but at that height we do get to look out of the square window.
We have finally 'named' the Discovery Carriage on platform 1. John Hamer foxing the name board while Phil looks on.
and Finally a question I have had for some time. What is the number of the LNWR van?
Richard applied the numbering today. Apparently this is the original number. Its not the number on the van when it came in , 47972, I am now wondering why and when it got changed!
