Work on the 19 October focused on the trial fitting of the new boiler/smokebox section into the smokebox saddle. The reason being because the new part has a marginally bigger diameter than the old one that it is replacing. The trial has shown that we need to ease the saddle a little before it will sit properly.  The above picture is taken mid way through the trial.
