    Sorry if this is a slightly thick question but how hard is it to fit it with dual brakes? That way if the GCRN vac set has an issue it could still run.

    How far off are this pair to running again? Seriously looking forward to having an industrial tank at rudd. Should be a good fit.

    Funny that you should raise the question of dual brakes. Manning Wardle 2009 will be fitted with single pipe air brake. The main reservoir has been mounted and the bracketing for pipe runs under the left hand footplate is in place. Since pipe runs are no larger than 1 inch bore for air brake, the routing is easier than vacuum brake. Vacuum and steam heat run down the right hand side. MW1762 is probably nearer to completion than MW2009 as the recent setback of discovery of further distortion in the frame has held matters up a bit.
