Black 5 Special Saturday

As mentioned on many occasion volunteering does have its perks so to speak, while busily priming and first coat glossing the embankment side of the North British coach we had some great opportunities to see close up the visiting Black 5 44871 which was providing the horse power for the Saturday timetable. The Black 5 is being stabled at Bo’ness whilst it supports the SRPS Railtour August Sunday runs around Fife & Tweedbank. To finish the day off 419 and the Caley coaches made a trip up the hill to Birkhill too!!

Anyway less of the trainspotting and back to the work at hand. Corner edging has now been fitted to both ends of the coach which brings to a close the cladding, the embankment side of the coach has been primed and work has started on the main gloss work.  It is hoped weather permitting to complete the work next weekend.
