NGG 60 has seen a lot of work take place since the last update.  The super heaters have been hydraulically tested and fitted, this means the boiler unit is virtually complete other than fitting a brick arch in the firebox and the in steam inspection.  The power units entered the works in December and the boiler unit was placed into temporary store. So far the power units have both had their cylinders stripped for inspection and were found to be in good order, new piston rings will be fitted throughout.  The leading power unit has had the wheels dropped for turning, which is almost complete. The axle boxes were also inspected and found to be in good condition.  The power unit will receive modifications to fit air braking as part of its reassembly then the trailing unit will be brought in for similar treatment.
