Plumbing Again

A short progress report from Himself on the complicated task of adding all the pipework to the outside of 138's boiler unit.

All this stuff on the right hand side took most of a day to do.

He says he isn't claiming that they all go to the right places but it's a good representation of them.

The job wasn't without it's moments of frustration.

At one point there was contact between the hot soldering iron and the rim of the white metal chimney with inevitable consequences - and probably some bad language.

He assures me that he's been able to patch it up with some low melt solder and careful filing.

Having sorted out that crisis one of the cab steps proceeded to fall apart.

It was one of those days......
