There was a fair amount of fluid thrown around in the drum and on the brake shoes, quite messy cleaning it up.
Fluid and dust collected on shoes.
Dismantling the cylinder I found a fair amount of bad pitting in the bore, as previous experience on honing out has always involved changing it again a few months later, therefore I wont be fitting a repair kit.
Also managed a couple of pre-mot jobs on Gills FHC, namely fitted a new bush to the steering column at bulkhead, I had to dimantle the steering column to do this, and also swapped a worn steering UV joint for a slightly less worn one. Checked all lights, gaiters, etc, so hopefully should be OK.

The Air museum is well worth a visit, especially with free entry.
We then drove to the Mid Suffolk Light Railway at Brockford Street, near Stowmarket, the railway was built under a light railway order from Haughley Junction on the Ipswich/Norwich main line to Laxfield, Suffolk, original intention was to reach Halesworth, however they ran out of money. The line is being restored at Brockford street with about half mile of track, and original buildings moved from other stations, it is very quaint, with one steam engine, a couple of coaches, and restored goods wagons.
