Progress Saturday 21st May 2016

Hi all


Luckily most people managed to travel on the service train before the torrential rain arrived late afternoon. The DMU driver wasn’t so lucky disposing of the unit and getting soaked

The 8F group working in the Maintenance facility on the Duke had a good turnout of volunteers

The DMU team had their first day of forward restoration on the 1954 build Derby Lightweight power car. Over 200 rivets have been replaced on the roof and all seams sealed. Gutters were cleaned and roof sanded ready for painting. Work commenced on IRIS to convert the battery charging system from Dynamo to alternators


All for now
