Hangers marked out and holes drilled ready for cutting out


All the bits, including guard irons from .5mm brass, the fire grate front n sides and a little bit of grate detail in .5mm brass with rivets punched


Break shoes pinned onto the hangers, 1.2mm brass tube with .6mm id soldered into the chassis to take .6mm pins to hang the breaks off



Breaks test erected and joy-rigged at the lower end to work out the longitudinal break lever arms and cross fittings..... next
