With increased passenger numbers comes the inevitable increase in wear and tear on the carriages.
The upholstery team are took up this challenge as have sorted out some matching moquette to make a replacement. As this is in a running carriage it will probably have to be replaced on the move. So iguess the tam will have a ride on the train come Saturday if the new panel is ready!
Ken returned to compete the large panel on 16221 while John varley was working on a door skin and Nick was doing the cant rail on the other side of 16221.
Later and for much of the day John and Nick worked on modifying a guide plate for one of the roller shutters to make it run more smoothly.
On the painting front Des was on the lower panelling while David was on the top section with some greying up on 34929
Craig and Trevor were cleaning and sorting out door hinges on 34929
and also door lock plate mountings. 3 of the 4 screws came out ok. The least said about the forth!
Mike was working on one of the blank (windowless) doors from 34929.
Richard was making some plywood plates with holes in for Ed. I am not sure what they are for and at the time Ed wasn't around to ask!
Ed was actually up at Toddington with Andy to measure up for some planking to cover one of the loco pits. He was soon back at Winchcombe and making the first one up.
Colin was working on the doors for the Broadway Refreshment room kitchen.
and someone else, not me this time, was making sandcastles!
