Evening work to 401

Following on from 401s steam test today, there is still a few menial tasks to carry out on the loco before it can enter service. One job carried out this evening was a quick repair to the locomotives whistle as it was leaking/passing quite severely. In this photo, Michael has removed the whistle and has the feed pipe in a vice ready for cleaning
