    Thanks, don't read the beano or dandy! Was there mention of a batch? Could be considerable scope to reduce costs through economies of production in bulk. Must be other 5s likely to need new cylinders in due course.

    Kevin West has nearly finished the CAD work for the outside cylinders to be cast from Poly Patterns. If any other groups from black 5s need the file contact Kevin. He is also available for contract work if other locos want CAD work doing.
