The expansion links have been cleaned and the die blocks removed. The links will need reprofiling and then the blocks replacing or white metaling to take up the wear. Some of the bushes have worn and worked loose, they are scheduled for replacement.
The accumulation of crud is removed from the brake gear to allow measurements to be taken. Initial thoughts are that the pins will be skimmed to take out wear then new bushes will be made to suit and pushed into place.
The axle box underkeeps have had the new fillers fitted, this will make oiling up and removal of any water a lot easier. Re-wheeling is now imminent
