superweek day 1

The first day of superweek is over, and as the sun sets, Gavin has fitted almost all of the backhead fittings to the replacement boiler. Paul Quinn was grinding and drilling out modifications made to the smokebox, and Alan was cutting bits here and there. Berry Peffer spent most of the day undoing the copper lubrication pipes on the engine units, so that they can be annealed. Some cleaning up of the area was done, and that pretty much saw the day out.
