Update - 31st December

Another full day's work on the loco saw the remaining few bits and pieces of left-hand frame put into primer. The last of the four buffer shanks and buffer head rears (front right) has been rubbed down and ferriconed, so all four buffers are in "natural" black and looking very smart. Inside the cab, the interior of the cab rear is also now fully primed, and more sections elsewhere cleaned and ferriconed. 
With the winter shutdown about to commence, getting to May to work on her will be a little less convenient but there's plenty more to do and hopefully good progress will be made in the early part of 2012.
