Again just a small perfectly formed team of 5 at Winchcombe today!
While we are waiting for the welding and machining of the remaining parts to complete the trial assembly of the Btoadway Bracket (need to ensure that everything fits before we dismantle prior to going vertical on site) - we are going to do some preparatory work sorting out the main parts for another bracket signal which will be constructed to replace the one at Cheltenham which is in need of serious repair.
We have two of the main side assemblies which are about two feet longer than needed
A bit of searching then to find all the end plates, platform supports, doll clamps and bracing bars - plus a bit of drilling to match up bolt holes
All of these parts will need cleaning and re-painting.. George B has made a start with the priming of some of the smaller parts - the never ending re-conditionimg of signalling equipment!
PS. I mentioned some time ago that we were short of block shelf plungers for Broadway Signal Box - - a blog reader has very kindly donated donated three of these to us! Re-cycling is alive and well - they have come to a good home!
