Another busy, and tiring weekend! An early start on Saturday allowed a morning call at Peak Rail's Rowsley Shed to collect some brake valves and vacuum reservoir, before heading over to the EVR at Wirksworth where the spare gangway had been delivered from the MRB. This was loaded with 8 ex class 119 seats and cushions, which will be used as 1st class in M56160, as they have high backs and armrests. Finally a call at Solihull to collect a radiator! The whole lot was put away on Sunday. Thanks to Andrew, Lee, Leigh and the lads at Wirksworth for all their help!
... Much of the work in preserving these vehicles is done 'behind the scenes' so here is some of what is being done.
