Chaps, for those interested, and those who have already requested assistance with new crosshead bolts, here is the drawing and flanged bolt design Taperpin has come up with to replace any rivet failures at the crossheads.

In other news, my NCNG 4-4-0 arrived today!! I finally get to see one for real and I'm not disappointed. The Lake colour is perfect, Russia Iron colour terrific and decoration really sensational..not one line missing! Its a really nice looking loco, hope to run it soon, after I change the crosshead bolts.

David.

I made the new wrist pins today as per Gordon Watson's drawing. the factory ones were quite loose, and if left unattended I think they would have egged out the crossheads and eventually failed. Here is a short video to show the improper motion that the new pins remedied. Watch the wrist pin.
