Work has started to reinstall the sanding gear, both leading and intermediate sets on the right side are fitted, and also that to the leading wheel on the left side; the set to the front of the LH intermediate wheel is ready but not fitted. This allows access to the underside of the engine. Both trailing sand pipes are corroded through and will be replaced. The main steam pipes from the superheater header to valve chest lie in the lower right corner. These too have been found to be thin and will be replaced.
