The roof goes on Townsend Hook
December 2015

Quickly following on from the fitting of the water tanks, the team were soon applying themselves to this final heavy job.

By the time the cameraman arrived, the roof was already off the ground and the first attempt to thread the supports through the bolt holes was being made. They located fairly successfully - with a bit of persuasion.

Just the cab sheets to go on now.

Then just before the Christmas break, the cab sheets, back and front, were fitted.

Townsend Hook now looks like Townsend Hook at long last.
