The scabbling of the roof of 56223 has continued, with around half the canal side of the roof done. Sanding continued on the secondmans side, and hopefully one more day will see this completed.
Parts of the underside where removed, cleaned up, and painted ready for re-fitment. The fuel gauge glasses also received a clean up.
The wood work for 51618 is now varnished up, and is ready for fitment next time.
The insulation in the roof of the 1st class area is now almost complete, with just a couple of strips left to install. The last two vestibule walls have been secured into place and squared up. The ceiling blocks for the vestibule hand rails where marked out, drilled, and then fitted. More of the metal floor and wall strips where marked and drilled, and more timber has been fitted ready for the wall panels.
Three of the four rear jumper sockets where also removed, the fourth will need a little more persuasion.
