Report by Dave Clark
Another good day with 16 in with some more very good progress, especially with FO 3132..
Cheryl started her day top coating the new door for Toddington signal box.
The new undercoated skirting boards for SK 25451 were being black glossed by Michael.
Robin gave the wooden heater unit pieces from FO 3132 their final coat of varnish.
Later on in the Workshop he carefully sanded down a number of the wall panels from 3132 to remove the old varnish..
We have at last completed the filling/sanding/greying-up process on the Malvern side of FO 3132. Richard removes the latest dust prior to patch painting the remaining areas of sanded filler - he was later joined by Bob Keyte. This just leaves the north end door area and south end panel, both awaiting completion of the door frames.
Attention moved to the Cotswold side, with Dave Hancox doing some final filling and sanding. He was later joined by Richard, Bob and myself. This too is now just about ready for the final greying-up.
Also in the Workshop John Varley was repairing the second of the two look-outs (known as duckets) from the LMS Guards Van.
In the Barn Ken was doing battle with the somewhat stubborn section of corroded end panelling on 4614. This will clear the way for the Cotswold side crash pillar repairs.
Jeff was busy completing the painting on the recently fitted electrical connections and the chequer plate in both corridor ends. (he snuck in again Alex!)
