Talking of you’ve been framed (or at least Matt does) today Matt has also finished the task of painstakingly marking out all of the hole positions for the main frames! just over 400 holes in total and roughly 24 man hours spread over the last couple of months, weather dependent! Following verification and a quick double check, measure twice cut once as the old boy said, we should be in a position to commence drilling the main frames at our next working day later in the month!
Also the Vacuum Cylinder has been finally fitted together and tested fit for use and has now been put into storage waiting for the time that the new frames are erected and ready to have the cylinder fitted.
As always all donations to help us keep up the good progress are most welcome’d so please visit our donate page via the link below or see us at the upcoming Bluebell Railway model weekend on the 23rd to 24th of June!
