Graham Clarke was at Barrow Hill again on Saturday:
It was a busy day last Saturday at Barrow Hill. The BBC were there filming for a programme about the Diesel engine, one of the magazine editors was writing about D9015, much painting was done under 15, the loco’s battery charging circuit was reconnected and tested successfully and we found out all the parts we still need to start fitting air tanks.
As is always the case, there are a few areas of extra work you find that sets you back. The parts for the air tanks are one and the greasy bits behind the coupling and above the boiler tanks that still need another steam clean are another. Solving these things is all part of the fun and it makes for a good job in the end.
Thanks to: Geoff, Neil, Tom, Anna, Alex, Steve, Bob, Melvyn, Martin, Alan, Darrell and Ray. I hope I haven’t missed anyone.
