Over'aul...

Hello everyone. Today was just a simple day at Shackerstone in the loco works. Poor old "Sir Gomer" is still undergoing an over'aul. However, progress is being made. Vacuum equipment is now fitted, the smokebox has been painted, the cab fittings are slowly reappearing and the loco is slowly beginning to look much more like an engine again! Plans are afoot to have the ex-Mountain Ash Peckett back in steam for the pre-Easter Thomas event, where she will hopefully be dressed as "Percy". Meanwhile, an Ash Dump is under construction outside the shed whilst 5542 remains dormant, awaiting her private steaming at the end of February. I spent my day just generally helping around the works before heading home at a 'nice and early' 4pm! Thanks for reading folks. Good Evening...
