A Visit to Loughborough
12/08/2019

  Some of the Monday team went to visit the Great Central Railway at Loughborough today; in particular to have a look at 70013 Oliver Cromwell while the loco was being overhauled. We took the opportunity to have a good look at the bogie components. Also we are missing the drawing for the reverser shaft that links across the frames between the LH and RH motion brackets; this drawing also includes the RH lifting arm. So this was a good chance to get in close and take some measurements. Thanks to Craig and his team for hosting the visit. Alan, Geoff and Keith in front of 92214 which has a BR1G tender which we will want to manufacture.

Small Parts for the Tender
28/08/2019

  Here's a set of small parts just taken in to stock. On the left are the pins for the tender doors. The tender doors consist of 2 flat plates and a curved plate, all hinged so that they can fold away. In the centre are the bushes for the door fastening pin. These will be welded to the tender front. On the right are parts to help make up the door fastening pin. The 2 larger bushes will be for the "eye" at the top of the pin. This allows a chain to be fastened to the pin. It will be welded to some 3/4" round bar to make up the pin. The smaller bushes are collars, again welded to the bar to stop the pin at the top bush.
