SENTINEL STEAM WAGGON - Keith Stevens is in the process of drawing up the plans for the Sentinel Cab.
O & K LOCOMOTIVE - They are putting together the wheels, chassis, cylinders and reciprocating gear. Hopefully if all goes well and tests OK, I will have overcome the welding on the copper fire box. This has been quite some problem.
RANSOMES SIMS & JEFFERIES PORTABLE STEAM ENGINE - All that is required now are the brake blocks to be fitted. A new chimney has been made and has been fitted on.
McLAREN TRACTION ENGINE - Keith is awaiting a second opinion from Natal Inspection Services regarding the boiler and will then give a report on each part of the boiler.
