Progress happens when you are not looking

Progress is being made all over the place. Photos below show the progress being made on the super-heater elements in Melbourne while in Sydney, some more exposed metal has been painted and the long awaited reassembly has started on the cab at Eveleigh.

Included is a picture of the Garratt in 1975, when it was last painted. A scene not too far away, as long as donations keep coming in.
