Tuesday - All for one

The title about describes our work today with 7 of us in and all concentrating on BG 81039 as time is running away.

With so much digging, filling and sanding taking place up to now wherever there was room to move, it was time to better coordinate the effort especially as much has been completed. So we started from the north end on both sides, the idea being to check all filled areas, top up if necessary, and generally clear up whatever was left, and in effect tick off each section in turn. Dennis, John Hughes and Keith were on the Cotswold side, with Bob, Adrian and myself on the Malvern side.

Much banging at the south end was the result of Maurice sorting out the bad metal and wood work above the corridor connection. This was followed by a quick vacuum up of all the dust and bits.

Then a general viewing of the corroded area. Lovely!!

The other essential job for the day was giving the veneer in the new vestibule in TSO 4614 its first coat of varnish. Maurice and I did the necessary.

Both the BG and 4614 are looking more healthy. In fact the varnishing in 4614 reminds one very much of the art deco period of the 1920's and episodes of Hercule Poirot! All it needs is an Aspidestra in an oversized pot to set the scene! All wonderful stuff. Regards, Paul.
