Pistons, connecting rod and cab flooring.

Our busy team continues to make progress with building the locomotive, aiming to have as muh as possible complete for the Warley Show in November.

Last weekend saw us collect a connecting rod from the NYMR that they have agreed to sell us, so now we have a pair of con rods and an un-machined blank as a backup.

Whilst we had the use of the trailer we collected the new cab flooring metalwork for transportation to Llangollen. An initial trial fitting took place later

The team removed the Pistons from Cogan Hall and these have been taken to Tyseley for refurbishment. Once Tyseley have finished this work we will have both pistons and piston valves plus cross head for fitting.

Whilst at Tyseley we saw the new piston valve assemblies, the new snifting valves and the machining of the screw couplers

Thanks to all our team but especially Lynn and Chris Moore, Liz and Quentin McGuinness and Mick Prior who made the journey to Grosmont.
