More ironmongery

The cast iron brackets have found a home, above a workshop in the retaining wall. This area is based off the warehouse behind the L&MR’s Liverpool Road Station, and since it had many wagon turntables, one will eventually be added where the horse shunting is. At the other end of the yard a pipe has been installed from the  chimney of the stationary engine going into the annex of the station, where one assumes it is directed into the giant chimney-stack on top of said annex.

These I removed within near minutes of acquisition, and they’re absence greatly improved the engine.
