Double Deck Cars
missing electrical parts have arrived and been
fitted so we can now power up the cars with the emergency lights on
throughout the train. This will enable us to give
the cars a good internal clean. As our focus is on other sets at the
moment, no more work will be done on these cars for the forseable future
we have been concentrating our workforce on other projects, work on the
W Set has dropped off recently. Paul and his gang have been making
progress with the electrical issues under C3702. Double Deck trailer
car T4814 has had alot of time spent on it to sand back numerous coats
of paint. It is almost ready for the painting to start. The work on
the gutters of both motor cars will resume shortly.
long restoration project of our little shunting tractor is now
complete. The paperwork now starts so that we can have the shunting
tractor accredited for use within the
confines of the yard.
Around The Shed

broken. It now means that our cars are alot drier when it rains.

work day, some jobs were done too
Model Railway News
HO gauge layout, Electric Car Sheds, is now in semi retirement. Since
returning from the Caulfield Exhibition in Melbourne the layout has
been set up. Some fine tuning is still to be done, but HET
must commit to the running of Heritage Set F1, as well as working on
the trains stored at Redfern.
