Mink A progress

Doug and Richard have turned their attention to the Mink A van in recent months. Current progress is as follows:

Removal of everything under the frame that can be unbolted except for the drawgear which cannot be removed until the van has been removed to a final resting place for restoration. There is a slight twist in the frame which was unforeseen and will add additional time onto the restoration. The vacuum cylinder is currently being overhauled ready for rebuilding onto the van. Progress is weather permitting at present, with 9681 utilising the shed for the final part of its overhaul.
