With the crane out and awaiting a delivery for unloading at Apedale, I took the opportunity to fit Motor Rail 7066 with many of the various parts that were painted last week. This included the sandboxes and the gearbox. We also fetched from the stores a suitable bonnet that is still awaiting cleaning and painting, but I couldn't resist putting it on and taking a couple of photographs. It's amazing what a difference these components make. Can't wait until the bonnets are yellow and we can paint on the number 6!
