Alex as TTI trying not loose his hat
Andy with more experience kept head just a little further in to prevent hat loss.
Ian and Richard extracted 21092 from the barn and parked it over the pit.
Connecting the brake rigging is definitely easier standing in the pit.
As the afternoon turns warmer Dave Hancox was found down the yard working 24006 lleaning rust and applying some red-oxide to the inner frame work under the windows.
I was down the yard with Kevin fetching more seat bases for the upholstery team. No we didn't carry them up the stairs. Just waiting for the hoist to be lowered to collect them!
John was delegated to keep the mchequette lightly tensioned for Penny to sew the sections together.
Dave busy preparing the base ready for the new cover.
Dave and Eddie put the world to rights. Well at least they negotiated just how many chocks were needed by the Diesel department.
and Dave got to start painting them. Yes I did remind him we don't paint the curved face.... (but not until he was on the last one)…. so a little more sanding work needed.
Still he did do a good job of varnishing the replacement panels for 24804
John Osborn on a delicate bit of braising for a change.
Steve has now almost completed the north end vestibule of 4986 and thus the carriage. So, I guess with a bit more floor sealing by Paul and some final snagging of paintwork. The carriage is just about ready to go.
21092 is going to be with us a little longer after much deliberation the decision has been taken to sort out the south end water tank and deal with the wheelchair area heating. The carriage isn't due required for service in the third rake until the Gala so we have a little time to sort the 2 issues out.
