This blog aims to follow the restoration of SRJ No. 16, later SJ No.33, by the Roslagsbanans Veterantågsforeningen in Stockholm, as well as our ongoing maintenance of a vintage train on the Roslagsbanan. This is a personal view of our activities, the official site of our group (in Swedish) is linked above.

Progress with No.33

A productive Tuesday evening on No.33 this week with 6 of us working

The two Lasse's were reattaching the steps

Beginning to look good!  It is great to see more and more renovated pieces being re-attached each week.

I was filling the ceiling of B-end saloon, the one that is being restored to 1940s condition at the time of the railcars refit and upgrade to 1500v.  The last piece of trim for A-end was also being bent to shape this evening and the latest rub-down of A-end saloon ceiling was pushed a little further (until the blood completely ran out of my arms!)

Elsewhere Bengt was cleaning up and varnishing some more teak trip while Daniel was working on numerous jobs including a good clean-up around the railcar.

Finally, a view of the rather unusual bogies that this railcar has, with the main frame being below the axles.  I think this design was used to reduce the height of the bogie.

best regards from Stockholm, George!
