Updated 11-11-2017. The boiler is being raised at the front to level its position on the rear sliders and to level the tube plate on the new cylinder casting ledge.
The work is being undertaken by Mathew Storey
The boiler was raised with jacks until the boiler was sat in the best position on the rear slides. Measurements were then taken to allow a the new piece of tubeplate to be formed which will be welded into position to make a good fit on the cylinder block. This should be completed on Saturday and should enable a lot of assembly work on the boiler to begin.
On Saturday 11th November the new bottom section of the tube plate was bolted into position on the cylinder block casting shelf and then welded to the rest of the tube plate.
