A selection of pupils completing their Year 11 work experience visited Dave Deane and ex-Osborne School pupil Michael Matthews (pictured right) at the Eastleigh Railway Works. Dave and Michael are currently restoring a vintage steam train – a process that will last until 2018! They are taking the train apart piece by piece, cleaning the items and putting it back together again. They will also repair any damage or wear and tear.
The year 11’s enjoyed looking around the site – there was plenty to look at – including cars, buses and even tube carriages from the London underground. Dave and Michael talked about the importance of attention to detail – ensuring everything is in its right place.
