Restoration diary

As one of RRRG's electrical officers I will write about my specialist field as well as general reports of work on site.

November 14th 2010

Dave started fitting new flooring in the no.2 cab of Renown, Tom continued work in the no 1 cab of Repulse, Chris T & Tim continued loading items into BG2 and rebuilding the horn air feeds in 30 with parts taken from the cab of 50037, Chris B spent the day painting power unit coolant and oil pipes, Ian & Pete refitted the last cylinder head and began fitting some of the water piping, Dom lifted the remains of the rotten flooring in the no.1 cab of Renown & cleaned out the accumulated debris underneath & Mark brought some recently acquired spares to site & undid the remains of one set of the severed generator cable conduits in the clean air compartment. Two ex-GWR colleagues of mine visited today, partly for a look at progress on 30, partly to advise me on possible ways to join the severed motor cables under the cubicle floor without having to rewire with expensive new cables, and partly to lend me their hydraulic crimper to put new lugs on a few more 16mm cables.
