In a slight change of the plan the boiler barrel cladding has been fitted to the locomotive ahead of the superheater header, superheater elements and chimney. This is, in part, due to further delays in getting the superheater header formally hydraulically tested but also because a better method of fitting the cladding sheets was devised. Prior to the fitting of the six cladding sheets the boiler barrel lagging was finished off.

The A-frame used on the loco was modified to be higher whilst a combination of magnetism and a power hoist helped make a difficult and heavy jog much easier. Our thanks to our contractors, Leaky Finders, for their hard work in getting the cladding sheets fitted.
