In the SRPS Diesel Workshop, 29th December 2016

The longer term restoration projects are now 25235 and 27005, both with previous running history here in better days.

25235 in particular is in need of new tyres, and has a fund for this purpose. Quotes seem to shortly be being requested for the new tyres. There is also a restoration gallery.

I believe that the piston is from the Sulzer 6LDA28-B engine in 25235.

The fibre glass is from a cab roof from 27005.

27005 has one cab stripped down for corrosion repairs, following a pattern seen elsewhere for BRCW cabs.

27005 also has a restoration gallery.

A wag has added a GNER logo to the front of 27005.

Video is projected on the intact No. 2 cab front of 27005.

The No. 1 cab is well stripped, with clear evidence of new metal and welds.
