3 of us at Carnforth yesterday. We washed the boiler out but unfortunately, as the loco was not on a pit and we were not able to move it, we could not drop the remains of Monday's fire or remove the arch.

There will be working parties Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this coming week, the first jobs being to drop the fire, remove the arch and otherwise prepare the boiler for inspection. We will then start work on the preparatory work for removing the boiler from the frames. We hope to do most of this preparatory work ourselves and the plan is to lift the boiler shortly after the SGM (provided the recommendation is approved).
