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.

Roofs, floors and visitors

Lasse and Bengt have been refitting the gutters to the roof of No.33

 These are oak and are a mix of cleaned up originals and new profiles screwed and sealed in.

The water is taken clear of the sides and corners by these small copper drains that Micke cleaned up.

Meanwhile, inside, the other Lasse has continued to lay the new hardboard sheets on the floor.  He has now reached the drivers position in B-end cab, the awkward bit around all the brake pipes and the control box.

We had 3 visitors this week and Micke gave them the tour.  This included a trundle up and down our siding, with No. 37 doing the honors this time

Elsewhere, painting the interior and general fettling and cleaning of the running set is ongoing.

as ever, all the best from Stockholm, George!
