No.401 Update

401s boiler is now complete, with the new inner firebox and new tubes successfully installed, the boiler is still currently at the North Norfolk Railway where it will be undergoing a hydraulic test within the next week. The wheelsets are almost complete, currently at the South Devon Railway where the new tyres are now on and being turned. 

In the meantime, Norman has been working on the cosmetic side of the locomotive's frames, involving de-rusting and re-painting prior to the frames being put back on the wheelsets

401 is due to be back in service in the near future
