A lot of the modle engineers dont like doing steel boulers due to unseen corrosion causing issue. I had to find someone else for mine this year. The best bet if your South Coast way is a group called Five Counties Steamers who run the club specifically for getting a non fuss ticket. They do an annual boiler test day in March included for the cost of the membership. Very helpful on the day No-one leaves without a ticket i.e. problems sorted there and then, most are hardend engineers who have built there own engines from scratch using their finger tips to cut the metal on the lathe!!!!
