6045 has left the paint shop with a completed roof.

It has been to Kidderminster on Tuesday 17th for a bogie swop and is now back at Bewdley where the corridor connections will now be fitted to protect the ends over the winter.

Each compartment is being stripped out and rebuilt with a the finished fittings.
