More Wagon Works

The Civils box van has now had its doors painted to match the rest of the bodywork. I believe the identity of this van is B771300, but it is yet to receive its painted number/lettering.

I finished off the remaining 'Lowmac 1' branding as expected, and put a few finishing touches to the wagon plates of GNR Lowmac DE414130. It is now fully finished and ready to go.

A temporary platform was constructed from scaffolding next to Vanfit B759852 (static stores van). A start was made on grinding/chiselling off some bolts which are holding some rotten planks. I began to dismantle a section of the interior 'second skin' that these vans have, to facilitate replacement of the rotten/split timber. This will continue next time.
