There was plenty of sound in the main workshop with James welding the on the north end of 4986. There is just one stall area left to do at the top by the gutter.
John Squires was adding to the sound level with some more work on the second battery box frame.
In the yard Andy and Ian had a day long battle, first it was the electrical supply in the yard, then the brakes mechanism on the war flat. As the brake position indicator flatly refused to move the last resort was to cut it into sections and remove each on individually!. They cleaned it all up and tested that each section will now move in its mountings but now there is another job for the welders!
Richard and Paul have got to the jigsaw stage with another set of brake rigging. This the set from the Brake van in the yard. Each part laid out and numbered.
which unlike certain other cunning plans actually seems to be coming together.
In the upholstery shop John Hill and Penny were fitting a yet another seat cover
while Dave was building up the seat base.
I spent part of the morning showing a pre-booked group of visitors round the works and finally here passing them onto the Signalman.
