Progress Sunday 8th January 2017

Dear all,

Not many on site today but still plenty of progress. Barry the Bubble had more cant rail repaired on the north end cab, plus the remaining rust was removed from the body side and primed. After, the faulty hinge on the big opening on the side had the flimsy rivets changed for bolts and then it was oiled.

Faraday was used to shunt Iris on to the pit today so that the alternator could be fitted and the wiring altered. This was completed and now it awaits the fitment of the belts so that it can be tested. After this shunt, Faraday's donkey engine was worked on and the initial thought is to change this engine to a modern electric start diesel engine instead of the crank handle petrol original.
