Work started on Althea

Althea has been measured up and the plates for the new engine are being made. It looks like she'll need some new brake pipes too. Apart from that the rest is cosmetic as far as we know but let's see what the MOT turns up.

I have been promised some photographs of the work in progress which I look forward to.

I have taken out insurance on them both now. The price isn't a problem but boy was it difficult finding an insurer who would insure them as they are. They aren't camper vans, they are old, they don't show up on any data bases and they aren't motor homes either. They are now insured as classic cars. I must say I am looking forward to going to the post office and buying two tax discs for nil pounds.
