Hello Babs !

Work is progressing well with our third 'Blue' coach ( No 42), to be named 'Babs', as can be seen from this view taken in the ALR workshop on Wednesday (6th Feb). The ply sides are being cut, shaped and test fitted, before being taken into the 'paint shop' for, well, painting!!!!!.

'Lucille's new tender is coming along too, and it has had a first coat of gloss paint applied.

and the 'plumbing' installations are coming along nicely too,

 Top....Regulating valve for axle driven boiler 
feed water pump and pipework being fitted.

                                                                                                                                   Bottom....Ditto for hand operated pump (Plan B!)

That's all for now Folks ! TTFN
