Below are the latest photos of the work on our Wickham
Brian cutting new sections of floor for the Wickham
Barrie fitting the new floor around the fuel tank, note the floor nearest the camera is original and has been re varnished.
The new sections nearly completely fitted, with the engine cover in position ready for final positioning.
Currently work is ongoing on the tender
The newly fitted vacum bag and steam heat pipework, now fitted to the tender.
The mounting point recently welded on to the tender for the sieve boxes, which are waiting to be fitted.
It is hoped to reunite the tender with the rest of 78018 in the near future watch the website for news.
To finish the below photo has recently surfaced of the DRPS's volunteers collecting the wickham from bank top.
Seen in the photo are Matt, Stuart and Paul
Happy New Year
