Work includes:
smokebox saddle - building up metal where missing due to corrosion, the metal is down to 5mm in places where it should have been 21mm;
rear pony truck - corrections to axlebox horn faces to improve alignment and eliminate a tendency for one of the axle boxes to run hot;
Corroded cylinder block casting - various works to repair.

It is expected that 'Flying Scotsman' will return to main-line running in the first half of 2008.
