With chill winds and icy roads number attending were lower today. However, the work goes on.
Take a seat or at least a whole set of seat backs (32 in this case) load then one trolley (4 loads) and lower away to the ground floor
for installation in 4986 in the paintshop. Why do a good job once if you can do it 32 times. The seat bases will have to wait for the floor to be sealed first.
Just in time for tea. Gerry was elevated (not on the lifting trolley) to the upholstery table for tea having spent the day with the team shifting the seats around. Someone said it was Jenny in disguise but she could never do that accent! (every good wish for a speedy and successful recovery Jenny)
it was then onto the next set of seats this one for 21092.
Dave with the work in the sunshine and himself in the shade deconstructing another seat base.
Down in the woodwork shop Geoff was onto making shelves for the Broadway counters.
while Des was staining the cupboards.
The flooring for 21092 has moved onto cutting the sections for the corridor.
The door team are making some good progress with the panelling for 4986's doors. one sety out for varnishing and more nearly ready. Craig, not in shot, has almost completed the last 2 threshold bars. ready for the flooring to be laid in 4986.
Bryan was busy fitting the step boards around both 4986 and 21092 today.
Derek looking for space to work on the platform trolley's went multi story with the advantage of not having to bend over so much. He fitted the wheels to the top trolley today. Each wheel is cast and very heavy so we may need a crane to lift the top one off .
Filling in around the edges there was a lot of bit paiting to do. Can you just paint this bit etc etc.
In case you were thinking about back reading all the blogs this is the 1400th. Good luck.
