Progress Is Made
Two Coats of Black 'Weathershield' top coat applied (3 coats on West side of box). All of us now looking forward to adding the yellow paint to the four corners and the famous winged 'AA' logos that are extremely rare items these days
Box 472 Begins To Brighten Up
The four corner posts and the AA 'winged' logos receive a nice bright yellow coating giving a lighter feel to proceedings.
The area around the AA logo's await a final top coat of black 'Weathershield' paint. The logo for the main door is away being prepared and painted as are the number 472 'plates' for the East and West sides of the box.
After the main door logo and the 472 plates are replaced work will commence on the interior of the box which houses the original fittings including an unusual and rare feature of pulley wheels that enabled an oil lamp to be raised and lowered for illuminating the 'Cambus O' May' signs during the hours of darkness.
The group's intention is to house a 'mini' museum within the box which will include some unique historical pictures, a visitors book and Cairngorms National Park tourist information.
