Brake overhaul

To prevent problems with the brakes in the future the brakes have been overhauled.

Brake cylinders were already quite dirty and some brakelines were in such condition that had to be replaced. Brake cylinders were cleaned, honed and where needed new parts were fitted. The rust of the brake drums was removed, then the drums were cleaned and painted.
