The state of play on 6th January
2005 and 44422 is beginning to look like a steam locomotive again.
The rate of progress is already breathtaking and my thanks to
Steve Latham and his team for allowing me in to work on the engine.
It is an education to see these people at work. In this shot
the superheater tubes are being fitted and much work was going
on in the base of the firebox.
