A Garratt In Miniature

Sun is still shining!

It’s fair to say that the sun is keeping me from playing in the workshop. I really need to get an air con unit for these hot days! However, some small progress has been made. The rear end cap covers have now been slotted to accomodate the slide-bar bracket…

Work has also started on the crosshead assembly, with machining of the slippers completed…

Next job is back to the main cylinder assembly. Drilling the holes for the lagging, drain cocks, snifting valves etc before final welding. Once welding is completed, the cylinder sets should come together pretty quickly and easily (fingers crossed!)
