W55003. December 3rd 2017 Update

I have been away for the last few weekends so have not been able to get down to the railway.

However, work has not stopped. All the window frames are now in and the second to last glass pane has been fitted. The Cotswold side has been rubbed down, filler applied, rubbed down, filler applied,etc…….The oh so never ending task is getting smaller and smaller every weekend. Some door panels have been painted in anti rust primer, others are ready for the first coat of undercoat

The interior has been tidied up in preparation for the ceiling to be repainted and the internal side of the body side panels to be waterproofed. Once this is done, the insulation can go back in and the start of the internal panelling.

The heater fuel tank has been gathered together, (there is always one part that stays hidden) and readied for welding off site. It is hoped that this tank can be slung under by the end of the year, (yet another small job knocked off the long list.)
