Happy New Year.
There were 3 of us at Carnforth for the last working party of 2017 on Saturday.
Progress with honing the valve liners continued and the cab removal prep work was completed (other than removal of the hand rails which have been left on until the last minute for safety reasons).
We are working both days this coming weekend, when the honing work will continue, the refurbished steam heat valve can be refitted and the tender will be jacked and packed to allow all axlebox brasses to be examined.
If you are able to come and join in, it would be good to see you. You could do either day or both. If you do both we will be going to Lancaster for food and a pint or two - most enjoyable last time.
