Diesel doings

In between meetings at York on Thursday, I popped into the workshop to catch up with the team. Dave Hewson is busy onbody repairs to the class 37 and these are going well.

Steve Huggins is dealing with the collapsed bearing in the Western’s transmission and here’s part of the gubbins having been removed from the loco for attention.

Outside, Matt Ellis and Dave Leyshon were bringing the 52 back into the workshop for further internal attnetion whilst the transmission is out.

I had a look over the 4VEP car too with a view to drawing up a conservation management plan for it – it is essentially untouched since withdrawal in October 2005 and I’d like to keep it that way, but clean and stabilise it. Whether that means we keep the Evening Standards left on the seats, I’m not sure…
