Workday Sunday 21 September 2008

Our next workday will be on Sunday 21 September, 1000 till 1600 ish.

A bbq will take place on the famous thirtyclass smokebox plate.

Work will concentrate on getting the replacement boiler ready for its forthcoming hydrostatic test, and painting of the now cleaned rear engine unit will commence [byo 3" paintbrush]

And please remember that our SuperWeek commences on 29 September, in this period we hope to undertake the hydro test and to remove the original boiler from the frame.
