P5 on the move

With all the work that has been going on at the Hemswell Cliff museum building, it’s easy to forget about our other projects!

P5 – the petrol can is no longer required!

The BBC power generator truck “P5” (NGF 728) has been at Hutchinson’s having some mechanical work done. They are now reporting that this has been completed:

  • The brakes have been re-built and tested.
  • A new fuel tank has been manufactured and fitted.
  • The vehicle engine has been serviced.
  • The generator engine has been tested and run!

We are negotiating with Hutchinson’s and Hutton’s coach builders for the transfer of the vehicle. We will then determine a plan for repairs and refurbishment to the bodywork.
