Seeking a little help, please; recently received 32494 (#35-079) and am struggling to workout where the air, steam and vacuum pipes go (six pieces total)...  The paperwork included isn't very clear and doesn't show the back of the locomotive, hence unable to differentiate between sizes.

 

A shameful 'bump' I'm afraid, having again sifted through Google images and every page of the thread just in-case I'd missed anything!  If there's nothing definitive, would anyone be able to suggest a publication that might be beneficial?

 

Thanks again.

Perfect, thank you both; two excellent collections.

 

I just need to workout now whether the taller pipe is at the front or back...

...I'm inclined to think it should be at the back?

I hope this helps. I haven’t attached the pipes at the rear because of the tension lock. You should have a tall and a short pipe at each end. Note that the holes to receive them are a different distance apart and the pegs on the pipes correspond. A dry run should make it obvious which goes where.

No Decorum, thank you for taking the time to post; you're spot-on!  In hindsight, looks like I didn't make myself too clear, sorry...  :dontknow:

 

Looking back at the picture I posted, the pipes third and fourth from the left have pegs equidistant HOWEVER are a different shape with one being slightly taller than the other (the fourth on the left being taller, albeit marginally).  From your picture, I think you've this one on the front?  I found an article from the August'17 issue of Modelling which suggests that to be the case.

 

Apologies to prolong this...

Aha! I see at last what you mean. Sorry to misunderstand. I think the pictures here

show the shorter one to the front. In my ignorance, I think that I stuck the wrong one on the front.

 

It would make sense. The rear one has nothing to avoid but the front one needs to allow for the swing of the smokebox door.

 

Thank you for waking me up. I must fix mine.

Apologies for muddying the waters, but I put the pipes on mine yesterday (thank you for the reminder folks!), and in my dry run it did seem that there was a slight difference in the distance between the pegs on the two pipes. The taller pipe going to the front and shorter to the rear fitted into the bufferbeam holes with ease, whereas they'd have had to be persuaded to go the other way around.

No need to apologise!  I would agree this shot suggests the smaller one should be at the front HOWEVER I have embarrassingly just found a post from June'14 showing a sample with the taller one at the front...

 

...and I've supposedly read this thread twice, shocking! :swoon:

 

Hopefully this concludes the doubt, but why not include some supporting paperwork in the box?

 

Many thanks to those who assisted.
