The above photo more-or-less covers everything in this report! Despite the short nature of this update however, a fair bit of work has been completed. The roof canvas has received its final coat of undercoat, and is now ready for the topcoats to commence. The dummy end doors and the dummy side doors have been painted up to undercoat, and the horizontal lines have been scribed into the ends to give the impression of the end door structure and “Octopussy” personnel doors. This can just about be discerned above the buffer of the Class 14 diesel in the foreground. The holes have also been drilled for the final bolts in the bodyside, which can be fitted at the next opportunity.
