A little tip for those newbies who are going to dismantle their locos for the first time.....

Take out your mobile phone and snap pictures of each stage you are dismantling the loco, so that you know which bit went where!  This way, you shouldn't end up with a piece left over at the end, with no idea where it goes.

I call those pieces "hedge bolts" from my maintenance days - if you don't know where they came from, throw them in the hedge !
If it looks right, it probably is right.

In my "working" days, I recall a second engineer who always kept a few nuts and bolts in his pocket....as he went around checking on the other guys working, he would occasionally slip one into the work site. When whoever it was had finished the job and reported to him, he would invariably ask if there had been any problems - if the guy replied "no" then he'd be in for a quizzing ........
