Update - 17th October 2010

Work continues both on and off the locomotive. Some of the chassis areas previously cleaned of grime, old paint and rust have now been primed (wheels and parts of the motion), as have further areas above the running plate and in the cab. Rotted sections of the cab window frames have been removed, and replacements are now ready for primer prior to installing later this month. The front and rear cab window frames, which are made of aluminium, have been removed off-site in preparation for cleaning, repair and re-glazing. If all goes according to plan, we're hoping May can be moved to Swanage late November / early December to have rotted sections of the cab roof, steps and bonnet cut out and replacement steel welded in.
