Panelling commences

Repanelling commenced today on the RTW, another major step forward in the restoration phase. Next major obstacle, is tackling the corroded step riser and platform bulkhead area and getting window pans fabricated. Certainly the pictures of RT8 now completed by Ensignbus is an inspiration - we look forward to seeing RTW335 alongside RT8 when its own restoration is complete.

New floor fitted as re-framing progresses

A new lower deck floor has been fitted to RTW335 this week, whilst continued good progress on re-framing continues. The offside is now 90% complete and the nearside around 70% complete. There is still a lot of work to tackle around the front and rear ends, but it is proposed to start repanelling between the decks over the next few weeks.
