Working Weekend during the 14th October 2000.
During this working day it was decided to refit the new worst leaking window in TC1 V.I.P lounge.
The weather didn't help us in this task with frequent heavy rain hindering our progress.
Although it was originally thought that the windows in TC1 were about ready to fall out, we proved today that this is not the case. It took us about 2 hours to remove the leaking window.
E train has been moved out of the museum yard and then back in again to allow access to rolling stock behind it.
Steve Penny came to help for the first time. Steve is a regular "Tuesday Nighter" at the NRM.
Thanks Steve for all your help.
Removal of the window took a lot longer than we thought.
Just after we had removed the window, down came the rain.
In order to cut away some of the window sealant, Steve made a cutting tool for the job.
Steve's makeshift cutting tool, primitive but effective. Nice work Steve.

The clouds gather at the end of the day, but at least another window is repaired.
