Interesting walk-round today during the "behind the scenes" day. Noted the finish date for one of the LNER coaches as "21/9". Required for a nine-coach LNER set for Scotsman etc in September.

Thanks to the Gent who took time to show me round and chat. Appreciated.

Just a quick update.

Whilst 9369 is waiting for its new toilet chutes, 52255 has re-entered the shop to have its steam heat drain pipes moved to give extra clearance. 9369's bogies are almost complete.

7284 is partly through its bogie overhaul but has been temporarily put aside whist the wheelsets have been changed on the south end bogie of 149.

There were signs of oil between the wheel and its journal so the set has been changed to be sure there is now slippage.

This is now complete so work will continue on 7284.

149 is now back in traffic - it needed additional work to cure a steam leak.

7284 is nearing completion and it has required a little work to avoid steam entering the compartments from the stem outlets under the floor.

4550 is making good progress with much of the toilet wall now back in place.

At Bewdley 6562 interior is progressing with attention to the graining and toilet interiors despite the cold weather. 9654 is inside the shed to be finished off.

24105 is being prepared to replace it.

In the mechanical side 2701 is receiving attention to steam leaks and 1853 has entered for its lift and regular bogie checks and overhaul.

More work was found on 1856 but that is back in traffic and a spate of vacuum cylinder repairs has gone through the works. These were 6913, 829, 4545, 4509, 9220. 16232 is now have a broken coil spring replaced on a commonwealth bogie and then 9654 will enter for bogie overhaul.
9654 is complete externally but it requires a fiar more inside as new luggage racks are being made with curtains etc.

Just a brief update.

24105 is now panelled and varnished. Work is continuing on fitting out the inside with the new seat frames.

9654 bogies are progressing well with good progress on pins and bushes. One of the bolsters have been removed and cleaned down and painted in order to free it up although there are no problems so far.

1853 has now entered to have another broken spring replaced.

Welding on 16169 has progressed well with ends and one side completed. Will probably be turned to give good access to the other side.

Inside the carriage shed 829 is having attention to its door pillars to removed the corrosion.
