SC52029. October 2017 Update

1st October

Got number 2 engine up and running today on SC52029. Number 1 wouldnt start and needs more investigating.

A chance to look at the interior of SC52029 (the orange and black 107 unit) seemed fitting. So duly armed with some screwdrivers, a hammer, chisel and other fitter paraphernalia, interior panels, trim, light fittings and other parts were removed to see if there were any signs of the dreaded tin worm that had so attacked the Bubble Car. With about a 1/6th of the panels off, there appears to be very little of the fore-mentioned tin worm. A couple of small holes in the body work in the usual DMU places so overall a good sign.
