The lamp tops go on

Thanks to a report from a  correspondent - thanks, Brian - we can show you pictures of the lamp tops being mounted by the Cheltenham Area Group.

We detect a certain festive atmosphere....





















Very nice they look too. They are wired up, but not yet certified, so we'll have to be patient to see them lit up.






















A final coat of paint is no doubt still to come, perhaps to pick out those GWR 'flames' half way up the stem?

We should be able to do something similar at Broadway soon.

What makes them certified or not?

Tested and Certified by an Electrician I would think. To make sure you are not going to electrocute anyone.

Just to explain that I removed this comment as it had an unexplained link, which looked suspicious.

Hi Jo. I would like to just add that only one lamp top has been fitted. I was on duty on 30th December and specifically looked at this. Sue White

Like the lamp tops. However, as with the B & S blog, it needs more updates please.

As I said in an earlier post, work by the Broadway gang has ceased at CRC2, but I am happy to post any news that people are willing to pass on.
