Chaldron Restoration - 2

Chaldron Restoration – 2

5th May 2010

Below: This is the spot, being cleared, where the chaldrons will be erected, prior to No.14 being moved out and on to the Tanfield Railway. A good Seaham scene, with No.18’s frames and No.17 behind!

Below: Alan has been dismantling and cleaning/painting parts, including the brake gear (seen prominently here).

Below: This is what remains! The wheels will be moved, cleaned and painted ready for the new chassis timbers to be assembled onto them. The second view shows how the waggon has been dismantled in order to salvage the metalwork in an intact state.
