Good Evening one and all and welcome to the midweek update,
Lots to report on today so lets get into it......
The fire was going to get some heat in the AM as the workshop is in the shade till midday,
Sandras bearing carriers for the axles are now refurbed after the last one was bored out and had a new bush fitted with matching pin.
We have sourced some exhaust pipe that should do the wee rustons lum, it will need cut and welded but should do the job.
The bogie wagon is now ready for its floor after the guys pulled a couple of extra shifts to get it painted, thankfully the weather played ball.
Sandras axle gearboxes are now finished after the two Jims worked hard today and got the second one rebuilt, the axles are now ready to go back under the loco with the refubed bearing carriers.
Peter Mullen kindly organised the donation of 3 huge filing cabinets to the group, these will be used in the stores for fixings etc making it easier to catalogue parts and find things.
We took delivery of two ex army 12 x 12 tents which are going tpo used on open events as extra covered show space for exhibitors.
The narrow gauge locos are having control labels fitted in the cabs courtesy of Jim Robb who had them printed at his work for us.
We have started tidying the dutch barn out and have removed two lever frames so far the are destined for use on the line in the near future, quite a bit of scrap was skipped with more identified that will be moved in due course, then we will be able to fit the racking and have a tidy up.
And last but not least the biggest news is we now have coat hooks on the back of the cubical doors in the gents, Thanks to Tony for fitting them, no more wet jackets, :)
Well thats it for tonight folks, catch you all again on Sunday for the next update.
Cheers, The Shed 47 Team.
