Another good work party today. Little by little, 53 is getting some tlc, as the photos will show. Non Pevensey Malcolm rubbed down some metal, to reveal the original paint, Guy and Roger started cleaning up the floor metals at the other end, Richard G varnished some wood, and Ian Buck did some much needed strimming! Thankyou gents, we also noticed Malcolm from Pevensey had filled in the holes in the approach path, which means easier access. The next published works party date is on a exhibition weekend, so will be resheduled, BUT before then, it is time to jack up 53.One day will be dedicated to this, does anyone have timbers/old railway sleepers to help? 53 weighs abot 3 tons at most. Please let us know, this means we can start rebuilding the cab, when 53 is raised up safely!!
