21.09.2019: Construction progress

At the weekend members worked hard on the car carrier. After the corrosion restoration was completed, the side sliding doors could be reinstalled, through which the state cars would be driven from a side loading ramp into the car in the early hours of the morning. Since a relatively acute angle was needed for this, the doors are correspondingly large. On each side of the car are two doors, each one about 3.5 metres wide, which open up an approximately seven-metre-wide entrance when pushed open sideways. With these dimensions you can guess what a door weighs. Accordingly, they could only be set up today with the help of the shed crane. The first picture shows the assembly work, the second the car after assembly on the turntable.



In addition, the paving work by the water crane in front of the locomotive foreman's office continued. Granite edges were laid here and since each stone weighs about 300 kilos, a makeshift wooden lifting device was specially made to lift the stones from the trolley and place them in their final position.
