Update Saturday 4th July. By Jon Tooke.
D6566 is looking splendid inside the painting cover in the Swindon shed. Big
Darren can be seen showing one of our younger members around the loco.
Outside in the yard, the Lowmac is receiving some attention and a total
repaint is planned but the frames and the brake rigging have been cleaned
and painted first.
Inside the DEPG shed, the welders skills have been applied to the stressed
skin body-work of the Western and a new piece has been let in under one of
the body side windows which has received new glazing.
The opening louvered roof access hatch has been cleaned of old paint and for
the first time in many years it now actually opens!
Outside in the South Yard, the locos are seen at rest.
