A Riveting Day!

For those that are interested in the almost lost art of hot riveting, here is a video of the work we did.... Its noisy, hot and requires a team of people to make it possible, but it is very satisfying work when you look at the end result. Thanks so much to our old mates from Goodwin Alco, Steve, Creagh and Dave... Without their invaluable help, the cab would not be finished and already back on the loco.
