A Garratt In Miniature

January Update (Just about!)

Finally got chance to progress the 16 today – but only for a good 6 hours. Unfortunately, I don’t have the luxury of a well insulated workshop and heater yet and so can only really work when the weather is warm enough! So, given how cold the weather has been, time on the project has been limited – hopefully this will get better soon (fingers crossed).

Today, I completed the drilling of one cylinder set (hooray!) and the other one isn’t too far behind now. You can see the state of the cylinders below. Machining of the piston valves, valve inspection plugs, some pipework and a few miscellaneous jobs still remain. Hopefully, the pictures speak for themselves…
