11th June – See picture below of very fine knobs for the George collected today from Statfold Engineering. They will attach the handrail to the smokebox.
7th June – Handrail knobs are ready – just need to be collected. Castings are awaiting SG material to come in and are expected next week. The bracket will need a bit of machining (there is a draft angle on the back plate which needs to be taken off, and the holes putting in) and then they can go to the benders. These items need to be threaded onto the handrail prior to the tight radius bends being put on.
