Work on the framework has continued and the east side frame and cantrail has been fitted. The west side is currently being prepared  in the workshop. The gangway end has been refurbished and fitted temporarily to determine the position of the bolt holes.

In the meantime much effort has been spent in reglazing the sliding windows. This required dismantling of the brass frame by drilling out the fixing screws at one end after which it was necessary to apply sufficient heat to melt the solder holding the corners together. New rubber seals were purchased and the glass fitted with the help of liberal quantities of detergent. Further work on the replacement of windows is continuing.
