5th August 2015

Paul Walkinshaw (left) & Richard Shepherd (right) proudly show off Motor Rail Simplex loco "Wilton" following
 a rebuild including new cab and body in sheet metal rather than the old wooden one it ran with at LCLR in Humberston.

Jobs still to complete before its entry into passenger service include piping air brake
connections for carriages and painting of the bonnet.

At the end of the working day "Wilton" heads back on shed. It should be in use for the 20/9/15 Gala.
