The Garratt has been getting fitted out with the necessary pipework and control equipment for the addition of air braking on the locomotive.

The pipework has been neatly hidden along the inside of the running board and under the floorboards on the footplate. A new brake control handle has been fitted and a dump valve for emergency braking will be fitted beneath the new handle, and a new pressure gauge for the air braking system has been made in our Surrey workshop.

As work comes to completion on the boiler and cradle assembly the power units will soon be in the works for overhaul and the required air braking modifications.
