Thank you for your explanation Andy I did not know that background, can you recommend any particular reading on the subject?



Unfortunately I have yet to stumble upon a definitive work on the subject. Most of what I’ve learned comes from various tidbits from a diverse assortment of sources, and a deep and undivided fascination with all things steam. Short of being able to dig up an old railway shop manual on the subject. Maybe if I was a bit more literarily inclined.....

The shaft to hold the arms (weight Shaft) has been fitted the brackets were a bit fiddly to make. they were machined up from a couple of hard brass blanks of 7/8 diam brass rod.











The end of the shaft that is bent up will form the bottom connecting point to the reversing lever that is attached to the side of the boiler so it is unfinished until the rest of the linkage is fitted. The lifting arms will come next and be pinned to the weight shaft. hence the reason for the split bracket on the one side. Once the arms are attached the shaft will not be able to be slipped out of the brackets without removing the top of the bracket on the left side.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
