15.06.2022: Some progress
Currently, the last painting work is being done on the new tender for steam locomotive 50 3570. Thus, the tender bridge, i.e. the front side facing the cab, was primed and repainted.
Also, the coupler irons were cleaned, inspected for cracks, and repainted. They are now ready to be reinstalled between the locomotive and tender.
Thankfully, a colleague has done some home work to create a cutaway model of a steam locomotive boiler. The model has now been painted and screwed onto a stand. It will soon enrich our exhibition. Good to see are different colored areas inside. The firebox is painted orange, the water-bearing section is blue, and the smokebox is brown. overview
