Unfortunately a small turnout on Saturday resulted in only a couple of jobs being done.

Steve singlehandedly washed the boiler barrel and foundation ring out following completion of the outer wrapper repairs. This was no mean feet and included removing 10 or so rivets that had got themselves wedged into the LH front corner of the water space.

Mike and Chris spent much of the day cleaning the trailing coupled axleboxes (the trailing coupled wheelset having being removed by West Coast late last week and assisted John Graham in checking the condition of the boxes.

Unfortunately it was not possible to progress the reassembly of the engines as had been hoped.

There was no working party on Tuesday as only one offer of help was received.
