Depot Report - Sunday 21st November 2021

No.8s Cab – Work started with the continuation of painting in the engine room, most of which is now in undercoat.

The step from the second man’s side and the other piece, that makes up the bottom guide track for the door, was removed and cleaned up then refitted to the cab with the fixings to secure them. With the aim to get the floorboards in attention turned to getting the blocks that go underneath sorted.

With most either missing or broken a new set was made and bolted in, the floorboards were then laid over temporarily. The brass floor trims were then laid out and matched up to the boards to see which ones were missing so we can get those replaced. In other areas the bracket for the brake valve was given a coat of Flake Grey gloss and one of the boxes that fits onto the bracket above the cubicles was rubbed down and glossed Flake Grey too.
