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.

Running fleet maintainance and further progress on No33

I arrived last Tuesday evening to find No.37, our youngest railcar (1938) ticking over outside the railcar shed

One of the heating circuits had developed a fault, the tracing of which involved leaving the railcar outside with one circuit powered for a while and then seeing what worked and what didn't!  Here a modern service train passes.

Inside I found a pair of legs sticking out of No.35!  A nasty accident?

Actually it was Soren and Daniel measuring and checking the carbon brushes on the traction motors.

In front of No.35, Micke was painting the luggage racks for No33, a local band (ABBA) playing on the stereo.

Back over on the other side of the mainline, Bengt and Lasse were busy adding a final layer of varnish to No33 while I was adding another layer of paint to the saloon ceiling

Henrik meanwhile had finished off painting more of the internal doors, which now await refitting of glass and metal fittings.

 No.37 still sitting outside, ticking over as the mist rolled in.
