A milestone in the restoration process was reached today!. With all the ladder extensions now painted, it was time to return them to the main ladder which is still attached to the turntable. A local car recovery agent was hired and arrived dead on time on a rather grey day.Most of us had thought this was going to be quite traumatic, however, the 2 guys who came with the HIAB lorry simply looked at the task and got stuck straight in. 20 minutes later, the ladders were reunited and 240FLM was once again looking pretty with her top hat on.
The day continued with Steve Houston, Paul Wing, Pete Weight and Colin cracking on with the new wings and cleaning many of the small panels which were then refitted to the chassis.
