Window frames prepared for glazing

Work on "279" this week has concentrated on the cab ends and preparing the window frames. The No.2 end cab underframe has been cut off whilst the floorboarding at No.1 end has been substantially stripped and now awaits the removal of the Z6 controller before the underframe can be cut-off at this end too.

Other progress has been the completion of preparation work on the internal window frames ready for re-fitting glazing and half drop window units. The frames have been given a coat of protection red oxide paint.

January 2010 - Progress Report

Now that the window frames on the exterior have been cleaned up, attention has turned to the interior. Each window frame has been cleaned up and old screws/nails etc. removed ready to receive new glass and timber surrounds. However, first the frames will be treated with protective paint. It has also been decided to remove the decorative timber underneath the frames and treat the main framework behind.
