Just a few photos today as Peter and I were both busy with a morning IT meeting, and then in the afternoon Eddie and I gave a talk about C&W to a very nice visiting group while travelling from Broadway to Cheltenham. Just a rest after a long day Peter and I then joined with the ret pf the management team for a evening meeting!
Beginning with BSK 34929 with Bryan working on the badly corroded double doorway on the Malvern side. We should be able to retain the hinges in position and just remove the metal above and below each one, which will save a lot of repositioning afterwards.
The two toilets in the south end of TSO 4986 were being connected up by Phil. The coach can't be far off completion now.
From the almost finished to the other end of the scale, with Ken metalworking on the Cotswold side of CK 16221. I have put notices on the coach sides requesting that no filling be done yet as there is so much corrosion to sort out first.
Dave Hancox wipes up the drips from another water tank test at the south end of BCK 21092. However the cause of the problem, a disconnected breather pipe, was able to be fixed by Phil, which is great news because, subject to a test on Saturday, we now don't need to take the tank out. Well done Phil!
Dennis follows on, wiping down the carmine panelling. The end result looked very good and well worth their efforts.
Inside 24804 Pat and Tony are fitting more of the varnished door panelling at the south end. This will be a very nice coach when we have completed all our planned work inside. Its first run will be in the temporary 4th Rake during the Cotswold Festival of Steam at the end of May.
Once again C&W comes to the rescue, with Nick welding up some point rodding for S&T. All went well judging by the smile on Malcolm's face when he came to collect it.
