Progress Sunday 19th November 2017

Dear all,

A cold day without trains saw a hive of activity inside the Maintenance Facility. The BSK(K) was having the doors fettles following on from reskinning the bodyside so that they fit properly, including new or repaired wood in places. On the next road, the recently arrived TSO was also having reskinning work with the new side panels fitted yesterday being painted to prevent surface rust.

On the far road, painting preparation working including filling and sanding took place on the Class 33.

Nestled at the back, Faraday was lifted at the other end for the axle box inspection which proved to be quite necessary. Getting it right first time should help to ensure reliable service in the end.
