A new blast.

We have gained a new sandblast cabin which in every way is better than our old one. It is much faster to blast with it and it has a much more effective dust filter.

Now the frame is back in the workshop with its right side up. All the bogie boxes are mounted so now, the rest of the track arrangement assembly is in place.

Work continues

All the bogie boxes are cleaned, painted and greased. Now we are waiting for new bolts and then they are ready to be assembled in the cartridge.
Uner the engine there is an opening, in the hull, so the engine oil can be drained. The cover to the hole is missing so we have make a new one.

The body is painted.

The body has come back now after blasting and painting.

All the old paint is gone and then things showed up that we had not seen before. The cart must have been damaged earlier because under the left door there is a huge crack. It has been repaired with a large piece of metal inside the body.
