This weekend was, of course, the GCR’s Goods Galore Gala, with no less than 35 of our vehicles taking part. This included our vehicles on loan to the Mountsorrel Branch making a welcome return to the mainline metals, the public debut of B850498 and our wagon sheet. Our workshop (The Newspaper van) also had a trip around the railway to allow the stabling of the crane at Quorn.
Even though it was a gala and despite many distractions watching our fleet in use as well as the other Goods vehicles on the GCR we continued work on B854782. We rubbed down and scraped the chassis and this is now ready for paint which we are thinking of adding next weekend.
With the workshop back we undercoated the items red oxided last weekend
We finish by welcoming Jake to the gang and if anyone else would like to assist with our work on the vehicles please feel free to get in touch.
