A few photos of today’s events, both in preparation for the half term gala.

6412 was in steam today, so a couple of photos to show this. It will be doing some running in work next week.

Brian Dingsdale supervises Jim West painting the white line on the steps of W225.  Between them they have put in a huge number of hours of skilled voluntary work on this coach in particular, and Carriage & Wagon in general.
Mike Harris gives the windows of auto W225 a final clean before it leaves B shop after its refurbishment.
The interior of W225W has been given a facelift too including a new ceiling and the re-instatement of the leather strap hangers.  Unfortunately we haven’t had the time to re-upholster the seats.
