Before we could lift the loco we had to turn it so that it was facing south. This became quite an involved exercise as the shunting was made more difficult with only one diesel shunting loco available. However, on a very cold day on January 20th we got the job done and with 828 facing south we uncoupled the loco from its tender and then we were ready for the big lift....



The view from underneath 828 after the loco has been uncoupled from its tender. The large nut on the drawbar is very obvious. Missing from the picture is the enormous and heavy spring that that the nut holds in place..

828 uncoupled from her tender and by a strange coincidence so is 46512....
