A shortened week due to the Tier 4 restrictions arriving on Saturday. Progress continued with 5668’s tanks having the top angle removed so the corners of the overlapping side plates could be ground back. Front sections given a coat of red oxide.
Crossheads fitted to the slide bars, removed again to scrape back the high spots on the white metal bearing surfaces and then refitted for another try. Not a quick job considering how heavy they are requiring a lot of effort to get them into position and then out again.
