We made some solid progress this month with Jason continuing the brake frame casing construction. Using new sheet steel and utilising the rollers put a curve into the side panel. Once that was done and tacked into place he made the top pieces and even cut out the holes for the train and loco brake controls.

Also this month, we took delivery of large quantity of cabling of differing thickness. This will be used throughout the loco, from the lighting circuits to powering the heavy stuff eg exhausters and compressor.
