I finally feel as though I am getting somewhere at last. I am actually doing more putting together than taking apart. As you will know from the last post, I said I had the motion bracket too high, well, it was the cylinder angle not the motion bracket. Once that was remedied, everything went together very.


As you will see I have got both the crossheads and valve supports in place aswell as the motion brackets. These needed a little more work to clear the screws.






These next pictures show the front end off of the main frames. I have also added the step between the front frames and the smokebox saddle.





I made a start on the brake gear today but could not do much in the hour I had at the bench today. hopefully tomorrow I can get it finished. It is a bit of a fiddle as I am making it removable. Why do I always complicate things?

Hi Pete, it's great to watch this develop. Bit of a masterclass. You call it "complicating things", but isn't that just because you set the bar high? Can't be a bad thing.
