A Garratt In Miniature

November Update

Well, after a month off, i’m back at it once again! Work has started on the valve components, these include the endcaps, rod support and valve bobbins. Below is the valve rod support/endcap, with completed gland and support bushing. These are handed components, as the fixing holes are not straight to the frames, but centred to valve and main cylinder centres…

Top hat endcaps. Although not a feature of the original design, some Cockerill variants did carry them. I liked the feature and so, instead of the flat endcaps design, I decided to add them to my version…

How the components are starting to add to the look of the cylinders (and the weight!)…
