Chassis Recovery


Here is our progress report for June 2023.


The chassis frame rectification work referred to in the latest Warrior magazine was completed this month at West Shed. This involved around 100 individual items of work, all of which have been documented for recording in our quality management system.

Here is our progress report for April 2023.


 Following completion of testing reported in the March Bulletin the hornguides and now the brake hanger brackets have been temporarily refitted to the frames using volunteers. 

Preparation for the main frame rectification work has been completed, with metal ‘bullets’ produced and inserted in the frame holes where needed.  The rectification work itself did not happen this month as intended, because of key staff availability problems.

 The air brake brackets and pipes have been fitted to the new front buffer beam.

After the completion of Magnetic Particle Inspection of 69 chassis frame components in February, an item-by-item examination of the results took place in March with the involvement of our certification body. About 25% of the components have minor defects which are considered to be repairable, and arrangements have been made for these repairs to be carried out at Riley & Son.  A second round of hardness testing was also carried out on site in March by our competent volunteer, thus completing the comprehensive testing of chassis frame components required.
