At the start of the 2014-15 overhaul, Thomas’s boiler is lifted clear of the frames. It then gets slewed onto the triangle, where the    ashpan is cut off and boiler carefully stood on sleeper packing.  The last few fittings (safety valves and regulator) are removed, then the boiler is taken away for overhaul.
