Restoration of Class 119 Driving Motor Brake Composite W51073

The green compartment Stuck in a Time Warp!

Progress reported on 15/07/12.

It was like a step back to three and a half years ago this weekend as the team had a mega sort out and reorganisation to clear out the second class compartment in the middle of the vehicle. Only basic scraping of rust had previously taking place in this area so it was like starting from scratch all over again! Seeing the bare frame and then applying anti-corrisive green paint brought back memories of years gone by...
