Work on the Engine Shed Phase 2 continues. Scaffolding will go up shortly so that the roof trusses and roof can go on. Still on target for completion by Easter.

Bob and John working on the old station waiting room seat we were given. A certain amount of upholstery was necessary! John had some matching fabric.

The finished item above.  They are building new storage bench seats on either side.

Robin (left) and Oliver engaged on some serious welding works on a new BVLR tank after the old one fell apart. Oliver would like to know whether anyone has a rivetting gun they do not need anymore? It would be of great use on the Scaldwell rebuild. There are some bits of it on the far end of the bench above.

Don’t miss the February edition of  Heritage Railway!
