Work party report 27th November 2022

Dave Rolfe, Jay Hirst, Carl and Sofy Looker plus myself were on site on Sunday. Dave was continuing fitting various pipework in the radiator and engine compartments of 50030. Jay and I fitted the switch panel above the driver's seat in No.1 cab. We fitted some of the aluminium trim strips, but still need to find several other pieces. All the sections of panelling and the trim strips needed 'adjusting', as even though they came from that cab, they didn't line up properly to be refitted. Carl and Sofy cleaned all the engine room bulkhead light fittings and their glass lenses, and fitted all bar one where the fixing screw was seized.

Refurbished pipework reinstated inside 50030.
