All of the new parts delivered to site, now in store in the cream container. Managed to relieve the CoBo of one of its TM brackets. This will be sent off to be copied 4 times, so the 15 has a set.

Also, the lads removed on of the brake relay valves (Westinghouse B2) They struggled for a while in the heat but managed it in the end* This was partially dismantled and given a really good clean in the parts washer. Now left to soak in diesel to help with the removal of the pipe that decided to stay in the relay.

* With the help of brute force and metal fatigue

We also have facebook pages too, where we update regular progress - www.facebook.com/d8233
