As time permits Kevin West of West Steam Design continues to work on the design of the Main Frames. The current focus areas are the Fixing Holes and detailed design around the Horn Guides for the driving axles. The Horn Guide design will be changed from the original wedge design to the later parallel pattern to improve running and reduce maintenance.

The next area to be investigated will be the Stephenson Valve Gear and Motion Bracket.
