Work is continuing on the installation of parts onto the locomotive chassis.

Recent work has seen the final fitting of the four brackets and mountings for the Main Reverser Shaft, the two brackets for the Inside Expansion Link and the single bracket for the Intermediate Reverser Shaft.

The foundation ring has now been riveted to the inner firebox at LNWR Heritage at Crewe. This is the final job that LNWR has undertaken on the new Patriot Boiler before it moves to a new contractor.
