February 2024 progress report

Posted by Robert Hampton on 15th February 2024 at 7:02 pm

Work on the class 502 in Burscough is progressing nicely.

Over the past few months, work has focused on the bodywork and windows on the trailer coach. With the co-operation of our friends at MTT, the buses have been shuffled around to allow access to the other side of the unit to allow welding to be carried out.

The pictures below were taken on Saturday and show some of the progress made recently. New steel has been welded into place and replacement window glass fitted.

Thanks as always to the hardworking volunteers at Burscough. If you’d like to join in, become a member of the Friends of the 502 today! Thanks also to all those who have supported us financially.
