Work continues on the rear part of 1279’s chassis. The first stage involves repairs to the section just ahead of the rear wheels. Connecting pipes and electrical cables have been removed and will be replaced with new items in due course. A badly corroded part of the chassis has now been repaired as the pictures show. Cross members and outriggers have also been removed for refurbishment or replacement. Plenty of hard physical work but progress is being made.
