23/24 April 2016

Attendance: 3

Three attending today, with Jason, Ian and Dave J. Dave organised himself and continued cutting rotten steel out of the small end middle section.

Jason had on a previous weekend, made the top and bottom rails for the brake valve casings, which as the name suggest encases the brake valves in the cab. These were missing when we got the loco (amongst many other things) and Jason carried on assembling the framework and test fitted it to the loco.

If you are interested in helping out on either loco then please contact David Jenkins
