The painter is in.

To suit servicing requirements 629/729 has been moved undercover temporarily and currently enjoys the shade alongside class leaders 621/721.

Whilst in the workshop area the opportunity has been taken to reinstate the Countrynet Satellite antenna which was removed when the set was retired.

The holes for the old securing bolts and cable were diligently covered by the techs when the antenna went and now makes replacement easy.

After a scrape clean of the surface and some Mastic for a good seal the antenna is back in place.

With the floor down the painter has been busy in 729.

White ceilings and the Alpine green upper walls are quickly taking shape with Pete rolling the big surfaces...

and then cutting in the detail bits and panels with a brush.

A nice surprise has been the discovery of the Iced water unit which was never removed, just plated over.

Watch this space for the next installment.
