The group conducted a working week end in which the other nose End was removed followed by the TMB. Work will now commence on cutting out the remains of the tin worm infested floor to enable it to be replaced. A photo also of the new fabricated boiler access step’s which have been tack welded in by our contractor. The other end is just about ready for the new floor . AB

Not many photos from our last visit I’m afraid, but we’ve started descaling the bulkhead No1 end and No 2 end nose and Traction Motor Blower are ready to be lifted out the next time we’re down.

We’ve also had the bodywork contractors doing some work lately and here is a photo of the work done:
