Both machines have been washed clean and a start made on regreasing them.  The mini digger has a damaged idler wheel on one track which will need replacing before we can use it again.  The dumper is enjoying a rest and some TLC.

The east side of the Wagon Group’s Palvan underframe has been wire wheeled clean and given a coat of primer.  The west side underframe has been given a first coat of undercoat.  This is the first time in over 6 weeks that it’s been warm enough and dry enough to apply paint externally.

One of the platform lamp tops had to be removed as the top support was rotten and the wind blew it over, fortunately without any real damage.  In the toilet van the steel underframe, which had been primed at Christmas, has also been undercoated and glossed.

The timber for the cladding of the container, along with the ‘new’ palings, have been treated with wood preservative.  Work on the vegetable garden continues with the hanging of the gate and closing bolt fitted.  The new compost heaps have been set up ready for the spring.
