Production Update

Orders are with Statfold for the handrail knobs.  The lamp socket pattern is done and was dropped off at the foundry this morning, along with the pattern for the buffer beam sockets. They will be cast in SG iron.  We suspect the originals would have been standard grey cast iron which might be a bit vulnerable to knocks (railwaymen do tend to use a hammer as a universal tool).  The handrail can’t be done until the other parts are machined as they will need to be threaded onto the large radius curve before the ends are bent.
