    Switch no.3 release from Dug up

    Ordered a couple of recovered no.3 switches from Dug Up (thanks again guys!) Couldnt stop myself at having a go at fixing them up...
    Here's a couple of before and after pics.
    The one on the left was sandblasted before restoring, the other cleaned up by hand and wire rotary brush on a dremel. The steel casings were badly rusted but the springs are in amazingly good condition considering how long they were underground.
    Now i need to go and order another one and keep it "as found"

    All the best
