Working in a large team of Mechanical Fitters (Multi-Disciplined Operatives), Spray Painters, Vehicle Preppers and more, the aim is to deliver a full external re-spray of these iconic rail vehicles to the highest possible standard.
You'll be required to remove certain panels and components of varying size from the trains rooves, accessing this by the overhead gantries. There will be a good amount of mechanical work involved as well as more manual preparation work including some sanding, masking and brush painting.
