13th December 2021


Since last week's update we have continued cleaning and checking various components removed from the locomotive, removed a few more loco hornstay bolts (leaving 4 per hornstay to remove when we drop the wheel sets out) re-ended the mech lub warming pipe, removed the rings from and started cleaning the LH piston valve, removed the superheater header from the smokebox and cut and removed the beading on all but 45 of the small tubes at the firebox tube plate in preparation for their removal.

Many thanks to Angie Buxton, Saskia van Schip Steve Gibson, Rolly Bingham and Robbie Ellis who have all worked on the loco in the last week.
