Out at 53 today, with Malcolm Chambers, and Brian Robinson, who travelled up from Fordinbridge in Hampshire! This must be the longest work day drive, how is that for dedication? We tidied up the lift wood, Malcolm measured up the cab end for replacement struts, and I painted more primer on the cab "B" metals.We then took off the wheels on the front trailer set, and then took of the rear set! That involved some gentle metal cutting by El Presidente, but the set is off.We will need a hand to shift it, it is heavy! A good day's work, and another move forward.... The top photo shows an air compressor under the stairs of a Birmingham tram, 53 had the same in the same place.
