11/03/18 Shocking stencils

A little fragmented this weekend as we had a few distractions for members of the team,  Mothering Sunday, Scout activities, a Photocharter, but more importantly the first Swapmeet of the year.

 

B850498 now has the dummy shock gear attached permanently and once it was fitted the bare aluminium received a coat of bitumen

 

A requirement for vehicles on the GCR is to have their running number clearly visible on serviceable vehicles. A number of the P Way fleet had lost their numbers so it was decided to apply these.  Quite by chance, however, looking around the swapmeet we found an almost complete set of brass stencils these were put to work instantly.  Although not to BR standard each vehicle is clearly identifiable and full signwriting will be complete as each goes through restoration, more than likely next year.
