hot day, though most of With the Workshop roller shutter open and the LNWR
van rolled back a few feet to give extra space,
Dennis Stevens completed the top coating. We will however, give
the newly rebuilt doors yet another coat. This just leaves the "L
N W R" lettering to paint and the application of the transfers.
Malcolm Baker tidied up the south corridor end of TSO 5023 and then applied undercoat Dark Grey. This is the first time we have used this and it will be better under black gloss instead of our universal Light Grey. He also applied red oxide to the exposed metal end plate.
A quick bit of painting on the inside of the station

Ainsley was the only one out in the heat
as he continued the clean-up and priming of the storage racking
for use in the new area of the Workshop.
With windows well open and fans going, Vivian completely
stripped down another of the DMU seats.
It will have been quite a

Lunchtime break with Ainsley, Richard, Dennis and Vivian
having a well earned rest.
