Engineering Update

The drawing of the footplate supports has been sent to Premier Castings. These are large castings that will support the footplate and side tanks and also double up as the brake hanger and attachment point for the various pipes that run along the engine but hidden by the valance. The lamp irons have been modeled and we await costing.
The order for the diagonal stay that sits beneath the bunker and footplate is expected to be placed this week.
