Report by Dave Clark
15 in today and certainly one of the best so far for a Tuesday attendance, especially when considering that several Tuesday regulars weren't in.
Now who's this sat in the GWR van - a new volunteer to help Richard Stone?
Richard was in a little later today, but was soon battling with an awkward bit of corroded metal on one of the north end vents. The new van roof looks really splendid from this angle. Richard was later measuring this in preparation for ordering the canvas cover.
Adrian spent his day on a number of items on the Paintshop trestles. The long internal ceiling section from TSO 4614 was sanded down ready for undercoat. The repaired chair from RBr 1672 and wooden heater unit pieces from FO 3132 had a second coat of varnish, the table legs for SK 25451 were given a second coat of black gloss, and the extensions to the corridor connection supports, also for 3132, were undercoated in dark grey.
The remaining seat backs and some more seat cushions for SK 25451 were brought in from their storage in BG 81039 in the Third Rake. Dennis and Richard move steadily along the corridor of 25451 with one of the heavy backs. Once all the seating is in the new lino can be laid in the corridor and vestibules.
and Keith filled and sanded down the two buggy doors that had been cleaned and greyed-up on Saturday, while I sanded and greyed-up the third door. More progress was made with the Cotswold side and south corner of the buggy with John Hughes and I greying those up.
Dennis cleaned out the top door runners before applying a new layer of grease.
