A further update on progress with 6045 has been posted today.

See http://www.gw-svr-a.org.uk/6045-restoration.html

During October the coach will move to Kidderminster and 4786 moved to Bewdley for work to begin.

6045 still requires bogie overhaul, external painting and new batteries.

On the 10th October 6045 was shunted out and taken to the carriage shed to wait for a place in the works to follow up the bogie overhaul and to paint the exterior. See photos on http://www.gw-svr-a.org.uk/6045-restoration.html.

At Bewdley 4786 took the place of 6045 and work began to clear out all of the bits that have been added to the interior of each of the eight compartments.

Work will now begin on its overhaul. See http://www.gw-svr-a.org.uk/4786-restoration.html for the beginning state.

I will start and new thread for 4786 to report progress.

6045 interior has received its final internal varnishing in the shed at Kidderminster. It now waits a place in Kiddermister shops for both external painting and its bogie overhaul.

Meanwhile its bogies have been used under 9055 to aid it's bogie overhaul!

The bogies for 6045 are now in the works for the overhaul to begin. Initially will involve removal ( probably with heat) of the brake gear for cleaning , repair and painting.
