We have concentrated getting the parts of the sanding gear made which were missing. Last week the Oldland end was finished, as you can see it’s currently being painted. A bit of minor work is required on the Bath end, hopefully being finished this week. With the Bath end nearing completion the hand brake column has been fitted making that end look more completed, the only thing missing is the actual hand brake!
All the sanding pipes have now been connected up, after a few modifications to the pipes from the sanders to the rail head.
The vacuum setter pipe has been fitted, this now requires having the bracket fitted to the wall and squared up.
