A short update from the Deltic Preservation Society at Barrow Hill.
Winter maintenance was completed on 55019 on Saturday. A few last minute jobs, including greasing fan drives, tidying up after the mammoth cab repaint and cleaning main generators of oil contamination were done yesterday. Some work was also done on the cab of 55008 and John tidied up the safety barrier and finances.
Thanks to Geoff, Beth, Nigel, Stuart, Mike and John for yesterday’s efforts.
I would also like to say a further thank you to everyone who has come along and supported the DPS at Barrow Hill over the winter, during the recent Easter working week and during the midweek working parties. It all makes what we love possible and it would not happen without your support.
55019 departed for the Severn Valley on May 6th and has now arrived at Kidderminster.
