Engine No.3 Mate Susan made a short visit to Low End Works recently for minor modifications:

  • The loco entered the Erecting Shop and the 6 BA brass cheese-head bolts securing the upper parts of the cab side sheets were removed and replaced with 2.4mm aluminium pop rivets
  • The loco running number (3), which wore off some time ago, was re-stencilled onto the cab sides using a white paint pen
  • No.3 then had her upper cab sides paintwork touched up with Royal Blue, and she stayed overnight in the Paint Shop to allow the paint to dry.
