Parts keep appearing from storage and need a fresh coat of paint.

Below Geof is painting the covers for the water feed pipes, these attach to the boiler cladding and cover the water feed pipes that attach to the clack valves

The next picture shows small amounts of filler being used on the covers for the steam feed pipes. These attach to the outside of the smoke box and running plate and cover the steam feed pipes.

Paint has been applied to the safety valve bonnet and cab side number plate. Some one has been hard at work with the Brasso too!!

In the coming days I hope to update this blog with some key dates of when 2807 will return to service at the GWSR
