Hi Everyone

Because Craig has been too busy to get round factory to take photos and do a production update, I decided to go down and take some photos and ask them what they have been making.

The DCC cylinder blocks have been going on the machines slowly in between Mark running his other jobs.

The 2" Burrell weighshaft bracket raw castings have arrived, and are currently being machined, this should be the last part needed to complete kit 16B.

At the far end of the CNC area the guys are working on the springs and a couple other bits for the next 2" wagon kit.

In the manual area Jack and Paul have been working on more bits for the next 2" wagon kit,

along side some 4 1/2" Foden smokebox doors.

The boiler maker has had plenty of time to get ahead with the boiler inspector being unable to visit us. Here we have a pile of fireboxes building up ready to go into the boilers.

And here we have the pile of boilers which is constantly growing at the moment. We have been in touch with our boiler inspector, and he will begin operating again very soon!

In the meantime we have been looking around the factory, and Dean has decided it is time for a serious tidy up and clear out, this area will eventually become the new control model area.

And all the patterns that were on the back racks have been taken down and placed into the containers, and we are beginning to spread the kits out along the racks, and we are reorganizing them to make the kits easier to find.

Many thanks

Great to see reports again and glad to hear your inspector will be visiting you soon as getting desperate for my roller boiler

Looking good ! There is nothing better than a good tidy up in a garage - it makes the projects so much easier to work on... please post pictures when it’s all clear and ready for the control models...

i'd have thought being an inspector it's easy to social distance! Very Happy who wants to be near one they are always grumpy! Shocked

lets hope the DCC cylinders will be ready soon or the boiler either one would be good! Exclamation
