Boat 233 transformed!

Dave Newsome, the Busworks' painter, is making a great job of transforming the appearance of Boat car 605 into its original style livery (and renumbered 233), as recorded in these photos taken by Peter Barlow of the Beamish Tramway Group. It is now in familiar colours and progress today is centered on rubbing back the green and top-coating this. Cream to follow, then the details and lining in the dark green shade. Looking good - unlike the weather!
