In October we got help from JPE in Wijchen, a company specialized in total machine maintenance (www.jpe-wijchen.nl). Employee Sander has been delivering quite a lot of cutting work so far. For example he cut of the remaining part of the gun barrel of the cannon, now the new part (still to be produced) can be welded easily. He also removed steel plates parts which were damaged by explosions. Plates on which the fuel tanks were situated. Also many bolt heads and nuts were removed with a cutting torch and he has been working on the wheel nuts. Now it won't take long before all bogy sets will be removed and all expansions/wideners will be visable. Then we can start to remove these blocks.
