Project Update - October 2020 - Final CADs Approved for Tooling.
We are delighted to have received what the final CADs for our GWR Steam Railmotor project. The tooling will allow for both the Diagram ‘O’ type and the Diagram ‘R’ type Steam Railmotors to be produced The most obvious differences between the diagram O and the diagram ‘R’ are the larger boiler room windows, double leaf passenger doors and ‘Fishbelly’ rather than ‘Equalising’ bogies. The CADs illustrated below had a couple of final ammendments before we approived the to ebable tooling to commence.
