ABC / Thames on the move!

Money is available to start the rebuild of ABC Unit 5 / Thames Unit 2 – GNF 951E, but the biggest problem during the current conditions has been to find people who are willing to start work on mechanical and exterior restoration.

After much research we have found companies who are willing to undertake the work so the first step is a visit to a commercial vehicle company to have the gearbox attended to (as it jumps out of gear sometimes), after that it will be going to a specialist coach builders for the bodywork to be repaired and re-sprayed.

The gearbox was made by Clark Turner and the problem could be something simple such as the control linkage, or it could be more serious and may require a rebuild, so another specialist company is on standby.
