In the past few days, the cylinder casing of the 23 042 could be painted and installed. Before that, the insulation wool was fitted. After the casing was installed, the lubrication lines could be connected to the cylinder on the heater side. Furthermore, the 23 was able to get a breath of fresh air again, as work on the caster was necessary for the brake inspection. In addition, the last valves were reworked and installed together with the adjusting rods.
On the ELNA 184 DME, a brake and period extension inspection was carried out. Afterwards, a wash was carried out so that the locomotive would be clean for the coming days of operation.
On the V62, the wiring is being continued.
Last week, further work was done on the running gear of Kö 0460. The new primer was finally applied to the locomotive. Three spots still have to be worked on so that the whole locomotive can be primed. The aim is to apply the first coat of paint before the Rail World Days. First, however, the deadline work on Kö 3504 and Kö 1002 has priority, as these are needed for the Bahnwelttage.
As the vehicles in the locomotive shed were also exposed to the dust of the construction work during the demolition of the partition wall, the Wismar rail bus was thoroughly cleaned and polished up on the outside to restore the “old shine”. The result is impressive!
Now that Bi 84 803 is back on its own axles, the work inside continues. Last Saturday, the seat frames were put back in place.
