Wednesday - Back to the normal stuff!

Being Wednesday we had a full compliment of the 'Trades' in today.

The upholstery team were in full flow with the staple guns blazing. Rambo has nothing on this lot when they open fire!

The woodwork shop was a hive of activity with a lot od smaller sections of wood inserts being produced to trim the doors on 4986.

We have had to replace a large veneer panel in the centre vestibule of 4986. Here Des is resealing the g;lass and trim in the panel.

One small problem is that the new panel is thicker than the original.  So a small modification has to be made for the doorway protection strip. This would normally clip over both side of the panel by now has to be padded out and can only but up to the edge.

Des back in the south end vestibule with another coat of varnish.

while Colin installed some beading trim in the toilet area.

Not quite the normal stuff for Ken today. Here working on reducing 3 gate posts to 2 taller ones.

Some more of the finishing off bits. shuttering being put round the base of the pillars before concreting in. Thanks to the newly named Construction and Maintenance department who are doing this bit of the job for us.

The extension to the 'barn' really looks the biz. hopefully, this will help keep workers and stock warmer and drier.
