Apologies for the lack of posts about the Sellindge 4DD, we’ve been busy behind the scenes! Christmas and New Year inbetween!

Just before Christmas 2018, we were told about The NRM Disposals List. On the list was several items of interest which looked like items for the 4DD. I pleased to say we were correct, the Sellindge 4DD Owners were successful in obtaining, not just 1 upper deck large piece of curved glass, but 2! and 3 flat lower pieces of glass. We were also successful in getting a pallet of EMU pick up shoes and associated items. Christmas came early in 2018 for the group.

No work has been done on the Sellindge 4DD, as we’ve been busy sorting out decades of rubbish, old cars and clearing out the 2 storage container of very wet junk! We need to fix the roof on one container and replace doors on another. All work planned for January, ready for the DD’s strip down!
