Depot report - Sunday 12th September

A report from Beth Marsh :

D9015 - Work started with the cleaning and painting of No.2 end buffer beam. Other work saw the remaining bodyside window area painted in both undercoat and top coat BR Green.

No.8's Cab - With the chrome work now finished and collected it was taken to Barrow Hill today to start refitting it. The head code frame was first offered up and marked out for drilling. Whilst holes were being drilled the dominos were refitted to the frame then the entire panel refitted to the cab. The bodyside windows were built back up then one of the two was marked out, drilled and fitted to the cab, with the second to do next week. In other work the continuation of cleaning and stripping the original sections of engine room progressed with majority of attention being paid to the areas around the engine room door frames.
