Cardiff 131

1. Work continues on applying undercoats for the paint work and rubbing them down for a smooth finish. Nowadays power tools are used but 40 years ago we did it by hand - wet flatting!
2 - 4. The trolley pole is being wrapped with fibre glass material and resin which adds to the structural strength. Cotton cloth and tar would have been used when 131 was built.
