Over the last few weeks we have been preparing re wheeling the toad. With the axle boxes assembled it was decided this weekend to have a final push at re wheeling. The toad was jacked up in a sea saw manner to allow it to be packed up high enough to wheel the wheel sets under. Once done it was let down on the wheels. This took several hours due to having one 30 ton hydraulic jack available. Next is to have a major tidy up, carry on with the hand rails and start the side timbers.
