Notes

Linda Frames still on table in erecting shop, tender moved from old loco shed to 3 Road where a start has been made on mock ups of bunker / shovelling plate. Work has been undertaken on horns & boxes; the new glands have been machined up; the new neck rings are all done before grinding the slide bars (now done) and will be offerd up shortly. Progress might well increase now Merddin is back on his wheels.
