31/10/15 - A Halloween Day To Remember!
The key work on the spare bogie continued today with various components being encouraged to leave their state of encasement in favour of refurbishment and a future return to a wonderful working life!
Now those overalls are just far to clean to be doing that job. Peering deep into the innards, the work continues to challenge our illustrious team who get to grips with the heart of the bogie in the Autumn sunshire.
Pete Sandham takes a turn between the bogie frames. Russ, Robin and Paul pondering the next move.
Injector tests have produced 4 fails out of six (so far) on the injectors removed from D1062 B End this weekend. Nothing we can't put right!
Left: Meanwhile, work continues with the pre-heater control panel rewiring - Roger hard at work.
Right: Fruits of their labours - injectors safely removed from B end ready for inspection, calibration tests and refit. Paul and Jack Walker do the honours.
