Shunting 401's Chassis

Consett No.10 out the C&W workshop and the NER Parcel Van shunted out the museum and stabled on the loading spur

D2078 coupled up to 08915, ACC5 & A5 ready to drag them out the shed

Leaving the workshop

Out on the apron

401s chassis being propelled through the museum and into the C&W workshop

Successfully stabled in the C&W workshop. The firmer base of this workshop floor makes for a more stable ground on which the frames can be lifted up into the air to allow the wheelsets to be rolled out

Last thing to do is to pick up Consett No.10 and put it in the shed along with A5 and ACC5
