News update - 19th April
  It may appear to have been a quiet couple of months but we have various components being machined and collating all of the QA documentation for our Certification Body.

A bolting diagram has now been produced and agreed with the certification body and is now with Ian Riley & Son (Bury) Ltd. The frames will be soft bolted to allow for alignment and then hard bolted as all of the parts come together which is standard practice. Comment has been made on the bolting arrangement drawings created by our engineering team on how well presented they are. The 3D model has also certainly helped to describe and demonstrate how the assembly will come together.

The year is marching on though and I look forward to writing the new article stating that the parts are now coming together.

It has always been an aim of ours that for milestones such as the assembly our members will be the first to know and the first to be able to physically touch the loco when the assembly is complete. Now is a GREAT time to join the project, help the loco build and get involved with Hengist as she takes shape.
