One Mans Shed

It must be said that several of the people involved in the restoration of 6029 are contributing more than could ever have been expected. Ian is one of those people, dedicating a huge amount of time and effort to restore the boiler cladding and some boiler fittings to better than new condition. You will have seen the results of his panel beating in other posts.

Something you will not have seen, is the amount of work he puts in at home, repairing and re-manufacturing parts required for the project. Take a look at the photos and you will see that his workshop is being put to very good use, and I think the we can all agree that his help is most welcome...

Thanks Ian, from everyone involved in the project!
