Watching Those Wheels!

Not a lot to report today, half the day was spent making brackets/spacers from scrap steel box section on which to mount mini cameras. These are to examine the interface between wheel and rail on certain Mk1 coaches, which seem to be suffering excess flange wear. The resulting film will be showing at selected cinemas across the region!

The rest of the day was spent carrying out the annual axlebox examination and maintenance on the GNR Lowmac DE414130. This vehicle may get a repaint next week, depending on the weather and other tasks.
