A not much news week

This period started with a trip to Oldham to attend a funeral, whilst down there it was a visit to the East Lancashire Railway to view two coaches which were for sale.

The first was this CK, not too bad a condition but some issues to sort out

The second was this FK, not quite as good as the CK, a fair number of water ingress areas, so a lot to sort out.  We are looking for a first class vehicle, one that will be able to run straight out of the box, not sure if these meet the criteria.
Whilst back at the ranch, Richard had sorted out the door step web plates on 4477

This picture is taken from the "4ft" looking in to the vestibule end, cleaned up metal work.

The new bridge beams paid a visit to the shed, this was to have the bearing pads cleaned up prior to them being placed in position on 14 / 15 Feb

More work on 742058, this is one of the end boards which we decided needed replacing as well.
The other end, cleaned up and awaiting the new boards.
The original board that the wagon first came in to have replaced
Robert decided that the ground frame that has been with us for some time, needed to be painted black.  This frame is now finished and should be placed in position at Aviemore north during March.
Not strictly carriage news but causing a bit stir in these parts, the crane arrived for the bridge lift.  Notice that we have snow again!
