Having recovered the door furniture for the goods van yesterday it was good to see Colin making progress of actually building the doors themselves. Paul in the background was working on the more conventional, for us, carriage doors.
An oh dear. This is the door panel for 5042 door 1. I agreed with the door team they will make a new panel.
In the mean time Derrick was cleaning the grease from an internal door runner.
Having now separated the skin and frame of 4614 door 4 John Varley started on the repairs to the skin
Jenny and John were back to the seat backs for the BSK 34929. Getting the arm rest holes of the cloth cover positioned takes some patients or the material ends up rucked when you turn the seat over.
Phil was painting up some light fitting another component that comes in bulk on every carriage.
Finally Nick and I removed a large section of the toilet walls from 4614. That allowed us to remove a section of flooring and start work on the end repairs. A new section of base plate will go in place before we start on the crash pillars. That coiled spring on the left will also have to be dealt with it houses the corridor connection arm that is stuck fast at present.
Inevitably there was the usual round of prep work being undertaken by Trevor,
Des and Rod in the paintshop. A bit more greying up so that we can see more clearly what filling still needs to be done.
