Leeds 345 wheelset repair progress

The wheels for Leeds 345 have now been assembled on to their new axles at our contractors works and have been placed in a balancing machine in order to check for concentricity.

John Shawcross and a technician from our contractors check and record the measurements which were deemed to be satisfactory and within tolerance.

Another milestone achieved on the project to reinstate Leeds 345 to operational condition.
