Beavering Steadily Away

Work progressed steadily this week seeing four more track panels built in the workshop, 500 track screws at least, cleaned (most boring job in the world but someone has to do it says our blistered fingered Chairman!), the final installation and testing of pointwork completed at Birchwood Junction, our rail bender has a new handle, the prototype coach handbrake is almost complete, as is Hotspur's new paint scheme (Doncaster Green !) with just the tender top and toolbox to be finished.....then we can show you how smart she looks !
