Overhauled exhauster at Bowers
During September 2009 RRRG were fortunate enough to secure a fully overhauled (off the shelf) class 50 exhauster from Unipart Rail at Doncaster, along with a few other minor items. Although the exhauster has been fully overhauled, and has been in covered store in Unipart's warehouse, given the unknown and likely to have been a considerable period of storage it was felt best to move it to Bowers to have them check it over and give it a test. As such the 23rd October 2009 saw another day of shuffling equipment around. The day started with RRRG members Steve Tripp and Mark Burrows collecting the exhauster from Doncaster and taking it to Bowers Electrical at Heanor.
