With the Garratt undercover, the team continued to work around the cab. First priority was the erection of a decent work platform and steps to help with getting in and out of the cab. Once this was up and in place, the refitting of the cab gauges and pipework continued. As you can see, a most of the gauges and valves are now in place, with some pipework to be completed in some areas. The cab was also bolted down to the frames, so this is where it will stay now for several years.

While the cab was being worked on, the motion was also getting some attention, with Mal starting to polish the rods in readiness for crack testing and refitting. There are a lot of them, so this work will continue for some weeks.
