Good morning!

The hard work continues behind the scenes for #TeamSVR during the Winter Shutdown, as the return to service of No. 75069 edges closer.

Currently in the Paintshop at Bridgnorth, the Standard 4MT is being 'rubbed down' in preparation for a topcoat to be applied, ahead of final painting and lining.

If you simply cannot wait to see No. 75069 in steam, we'd suggest putting February 16th, 17th, 23rd & 24th in your diary...

We had a shunt round today and GWR Mica B 105873 is now inside the goods shed where we found it is worse than we first thought.
The first problem was that we couldn't open the doors. It seems the track in the goods shed has sunk over the years and the Mica must sit lower than all the other vans we have had in recently, so the doors hit the platform. This was soon fixed by jacking it up and putting hardwood packers between the springs and chassis.
The doors themselves won't be so easily fixed though, with extensive rot in both the planks and frames.
Meanwhile, SE&CR Open 12522 has taken its place outside, where it's a bit easier to finish off the brake repairs.

Treat. Well, today has seen the north side quarter boards removed from the wagon and all the quarter boards laid out so we could treat them with wood preserver. We have opened up all the large bolt holes to 17mm as the 5/8" drill we used previously is a little tight on the bolts. These have now had two coats so far, although three are recommended. This is a spirit based all purpose treatment that is also over paintable so will hopefully help to keep the rot at bay for a few more years. Back on the wagon itself, the drop doors and ends are still to be removed.

In the workshop, the inner corner straps have now been shotblasted clean ready for re-painting. These are being done as 'homework' along with the bottom door hinges and brake hangers shotblasted last time. These will be treated with POR15 'Metal Prep and Ready' which is an acid rust remover and surface preparer, then painted with POR15 black paint which is ideal on rough metal. This technique has proved itself on my Land Rover axles and minor bracketry for the last 12 years.

Also at home, the previously repaired droplight for our Royal Saloon 1910 has now been rubbed down and undercoated. This will need a few coats to get a reasonable finish on the new wood as its grain was a little rough.

Following a discussion between the members of the 'DBT' team we would be interested to hear from any railway that would like to hire our 'Diesel Brake Tender' for use at galas and photo charters (obviously it would be the later that helps to pay for road transport costs). Any railway that is interested should make contact via info@rvp-ltd.org.uk ... See MoreSee Less
