Work continues on our projects. PD2 1349 is having windows fitted which is a lengthy process as it requires the recently made window pans to be matched up to the new glass and fitted in place with new window rubber. The upstairs front windows are already fitted and attention is now on the side ones downstairs. Our other PD2 project, 1467, is now in position on the vehicle lift for the fitting of a new exhaust and linking up the brake rodding.

Plenty of progress with Royal Tiger 377 and Morecambe & Heysham 72; report next time

In addition to restorations we also have a couple of our operating fleet undergoing repair or refurbishment. Atlantean 1481 now has most of its new floor fitted and the lino laid. Much of the corrosion over the engine bonnet has been eliminated and the repaired engine is ready to go in. Cavalier 1036 is also up in the air for the fitting of a new exhaust and some chassis painting.
