During 2008 one of the main areas of progress was with the electrical cubicle which was very heavily stripped prior to RRRG acquiring the locos in 2002. Here New rotary switches are seen installed on the cubicle door, at the time of purchase not only were the switches missing, which have all been replaced with new items, but the door was also missing.

Another absentee was the CU7, which has been replaced by a new item manufactured by RRRG members.
