The concreting of road 6 is now well under way, another pour in the 4' having taken place during the course of the week. John sent me the following photos of a fair team of people (Ade, Clive, John, Martin, Alex, Jamie, 2 x Chris's and of course Tim & Neal) at work on Friday. The next two photos courtesy of John Cruxon.

|The end is in sight.|
|A fine looking job|

A little more work on 3850's motion has taken place, with the lifting links now removed, cleaned and placed into storage.
|The cleaning bath had two right hand gloves, but no left one... Doh!|
|Lifting links in the container.|

|2807's smoke box.|
|The first section to emerge...|
|...in fact it was the first of many.|
|It may not have been big, but with 225 PSI behind it...|
I received the final picture from Phil, of him and Ian having successfully removed the offending tube, an unfortunate typo on his part in the accompanying text said "One for the bog". I hope that he meant "One for the blog".
