It is getting close to the time when the decision on how the cylinders are going to be made for the East Hayling Light Railway Society’s Steam Locomotive Project. The original idea was to fabricate the cylinders, but I am wondering is there any suitable pattern out there that have been used once maybe twice, that is just sitting on a shelf waiting for another use? Ok we may be lucky if we find one, but with the amount of rebuilt and new built projects that have been completed, it must be possible? This is not a detailed search (we know we can easily go to Alan Keefs'), just a feeler to see what is out there? The Bore is 6" and could be up to 7", and stroke is 10". I've attached below a couple of recent photos of the project. The first shows the frames after they have been move to allow more access around the machines. The second shows the bits that have made for the project, mostly for the motion. Thank you for your help.
