yes i do have some photos for you this week. we have missed a weekly update recently, so i didn't want to miss another.

The factory is closed for the Easter weekend, but i was in for a few hours this morning because i wanted to get these 6inch foden chassis rails finished...



due to the size of them they are drilled in sections, with the next section datum on the holes of the previous section.
the holes are now all drilled ready for welding the end section on after the weekend.





the cross members are in for welding now...



and im also machining a new batch of spring hangers. you can see how two brackets are cut from one piece of box section...



the BU/roller rear cylinder covers from last week have had the second op turned...



and another part for the roller, a batch of weigh-shaft bracket castings have arrived...



other work includes adding the hole to these wagon spring hanger brackets...



and the various brackets for the wagon wood work are done...



most of the parts for the wagon kit are ready to go...



and in the boiler section, whilst harry continues to build up the shells of the 6inch foden boilers the recently finished boilers are prepared for pressure testing...
