Boiler Nutted!

I've had a comment from Richard Nixon of the Sentinel Drivers' Club about the previous article on this subject 'Boiler Bolted!'.

He comments that on Sentinel road waggons, the boiler bolts point upwards with the nuts on top. I searched my photos to see if this was the case and found this early one (suitably cropped and photo-manipulated).
Nuts Up!
The photo was taken in January 2005 just after Sentinel 7109 arrived at Midsomer Norton Station and before the boiler had been removed. Clearly Richard is correct!

However, despite being upside down, the bolts are tight fitting and secure and they are going to stay where they are!

It's good to know the experts are monitoring our progress! Many thanks Richard.
