Update - 31st May

A belated update, I'm afraid...
We had hoped that May would be on public display during the Swanage Diesel Gala in May, especially as she was featured in the Gala guidebook, but sadly it proved impossible to have her moved out of the shed (even to the rear where there was room behind the shed doors). 
Anyway in preparation for her public appearance, much work had been put in stripping and priming the right-hand cabside, plus more of the cab rear, and also preparing the fuel tank and bonnet framing. Work also progresses on preparing the new sheeting for the bonnet covers.
Cabside, fuel tank and bonnet framing all rubbed-down, ferriconed and primed
There are lots more tasks
lined up for the next
meeting, and we'll try
and give a prompt
progress report after that!
