'Mavis' develops

The Boys were busy in the workshop today working on Mavis's bodywork, which is taking shape nicely, as the photo shows. She will soon be ready for a paint job......

Meanwhile, outside in the very blustery, but not cold (13-14 degrees), weather, John & Dave were fitting more of the 'H' sleeper supports for the isolating track sections.

Back inside, we were also doing some work to The Shay which involved fitting an operating rod to the new bell to give a positive action rather than the sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't ring we had with the cord method used on the old bell. Some touching up of the paintwork was also done.
