Engineering update - April 2013
The fourth crankpin was machined during April at SDRE, at Buckfastleigh. The cylinder pattern for the middle cylinder and bogie parts were completed. Around 60Kg of lead was purchased for the driving wheel balance weights, although more will be needed.
The smokebox door, hinges and tube plate were returned to LNWR, where final assembly is due to take place.
