After cooking the BBQ Barry set to the leading head stock by use of the electric grinder and wire brush. As usual most of the old paint flakes ended up on Barry but the headstock now looks great.
Alan cut out the rusted centre bowl from the from the leading inner bogie. This should delight our bogie guys Kyle and John as both had the day off due to other commitments. Safe to come back guys, jobs done! In truth both have done a magnificent job so far, and a day off now and then is well deserved.
A big thankyou to all who organised the fund raiser trip to Kandos on Saturday the 20th of February. Thanks also to all who supported the project by purchasing tickets. Last but not least a thankyou to 3801 LTD for making their carriage available, it was a great day out.
The next workday will be Saturday the 6th of March.
