Hi Craig
Is any of those boilers for the burrell single cylinder agricultural?
The boiler is supposed to be the next physical kit after my next boiler payment. I was wondering if I will get one before or after Christmas?
Thanks
Luke

yes we do have photos this week cheers I was busy yesterday finishing parts so didn't have time to post. This will probably be the last production update for 2018. next week we finish for Xmas on the Friday and usually spend the day giving the factory a good muck out (anyone who has seen it will know that it needs it Laughing ). i may get something up on the Thursday, but if so it will only be to confirm that the kits have gone. Cool

6 inch foden customers will be getting kit 17, cylinder accessories. Although they have not yet had the cylinder we thought it best to continue with the rest of the kits to avoid falling to far behind. The cylinder block castings have been delayed by problems at the foundry and we have been promised them in the new year. they will be given priority when they arrive ...
