With the Steam Gala on over this weekend it wasn't going to be possible to do much work on May's exterior, with a procession of steam locos parking alongside to take on water throughout the day. However some more cleaning and scraping progress in the cab, together with the application of primer to already treated areas made a big change to the feel of the cab's interior.

Another two full days' work should, hopefully, see the rest of the left frames cleaned and into primer. Front-left of frames, primed
