Some updates below this week on the various locomotive projects.
D1010: The loco is in the South yard and is now undergoing investigation for the "B" end transmission issue.
D1661: Still residing in WN shed on No 3 road, undergoing roof repairs.
We now have a path forward for restoration of the cooler group louvres.

DDEC a few weeks ago. A new battery box is being manufactured by WS Restorations and should be
available next week, if not sooner. The aim is to get the loco back in service as quickly as possible to support the
D6575: Currently supporting the Railway operating trains.
