Shed Noticeboard - 6989 Report

Work proceeds with painting of the frames. The axle boxes have been removed from the axles and have been stripped to allow a complete inspection of bearing surfaces. Progress is also being made with fitting out the working area within the new restoration building.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1987 and so does not reflect events in the 27+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
