Saturday 16th December 2017


Only 3 of us on Saturday but we made reasonable progress.

The top of the cab is now very nearly ready to be removed, the RH valve liners have been cleaned and measured (the LH having been done previously) cleaning of the LH piston has been completed and the piston head and cylinder bore measured - the piston is now at Flavells, Thornaby for remedial work.

In addition the cladding sheet around the safety valve and whistle bosses has been removed to allow the work involved in machining the faces of the bosses to be properly assessed costed and planned (this will take place in January).
