Portbury Overhaul Update 5

I was lucky enough to take some holiday last week and have spent the days down at the railway. ‘Portbury’ has been the main focus of attention as she is prepared for her steam tests.

Here’s a few pics I’ve taken over the course of the week.

Firstly, lining in progress (During Harbour Festival)


Painting up the inside of the frames


and the coupling links (red oxide first)



Smokebox front rubbed down and first coat applied



The obligatory front three quarter view


More to come…
