The skylights are needing a few leaks patching up, and the roof has received a good scrub. Assuming the canvass is still good order, the roof will get a coat of paint before the top coat goes near the sides. The sides themselves have received a few new planks and a some patches of primer, while the first bits of under coat have started to go on the river side.

Inside the goods shed, the Stafford road van is back in, in need of some attention to the three skylights in the hope that we will be able to do away with the tarpaulin that has been over her roof for a few months, hopefully this will not be a long job. Work continues repairing the leaking skylights and patch priming the sides.

A new indoor project for the Wagon Department is GW van 143. It is suffering from its outdoor life, peeling paint and a leaking sky light. 

Two images from Kevin Moseley show work underway.
