The weekend saw Graham Mortimore, Jim Gough and David Garnett working on the locomotive.
The only job tackled was the lower nose and removing the skin on the top of the frame, this would be replaced by new skin in the coming weeks. Cutting undertaken was a slow process so as not to damage the frame or any of the surrounding items.
