This weekend, despite the weathers efforts, has seen work continue with the imitation Shock gear for B850498. Apart from a few final finishing details, the main components for the west side are in place.
The components are all bolted in place using existing holes in the chassis and having been a former tank wagon chassis there are a fair few of them.
With a number of Photocharters after the Winter Gala we took the time, in the dry, to fill one of the vans with a prototypical load. Parcels were originally loaded in the CCT and the usual BR care was taken to off load these.
Christened the theatrical van it is available for events and charters for cameo scenes on platforms or in yards.
