Myford went into liquidation in 2011 with only a staff of 20 remanding on the faitful day my work bought a lot of tooling at the liquidation sale for our 4 super 7s we gave 3away to folk who could make use of them as students are more interested in Laser printers than real engineering now a days ,getting rid of the shaper in the next day or two as the cost of the guarding is making it not viable good old H&S so its going to a good home to a nice man who makes steam locomotives

Some times I am stupid. No need for extra bends on the pipes. All I needed to do was turn the engine over putting the pipes on the other side. Clear of every thing. I have threaded studs in the passage holes drilled from the side & end to form the steam ways. Fixed with metal-epoxy, trim when set. Also started the bed.

YORKSHIRE PLEASURE STEAMERS by RHBaker Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
Could be but I remember Yorkshire Belle and Coronia best. It was #2 though!

Hey Rowen, might be rather fun to build the 'Push Me Pull You' version 😉 MV Regal that was built for Oulton Broads and now operates from Scarborough!? 😁 Doug

My pleasure Rowen, Unless you were on her before (or on 11th April 1941 when she sank😲) #2 is almost certainly the ship you sailed in. 👍 Good luck with the plans. Ciao, Doug 😎

Thanks Doug, Good suggestions. Have dropped a line to the Yorkshire Belle 2 organization and will let you know what transpires. From the picture the vessel looks very much like the one I sailed in too many years ago to want to describe! Rowen

A little more done on the engine. Steam ports & pivot holes drilled in cylinders. Oil light bronze bearing ready to fixed. Piston rods ready I will be silver soldering piston blanks in place. Then with the rod in chuck turn the blanks to fit. Chrome crank shaft, pin & web in the picture ready for cutting. The strip of ali with four holes will mark the steam ports in the frame. when the crank is fitted. The small gears fit between the bearing & crank web. As I said before this will give the chance to change ratios if the low is to low.

At least one of them is still around Rowen, 😊 Try Googling 'Yorkshire+Pleasure+Steamers'. You never know summat might pop up! Happy hunting, Tally Hoooo! Maybe these guys can help, they are operating 'Yorkshire Belle #2' from Bridlington. Doug 😎

YORKSHIRE PLEASURE STEAMERS by RHBaker Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
Just been reading a book on the pleasure steamers that used to ply the Yorkshire coast from resorts such as Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington. The Coronia and Yorkshire Belle bring back memories and am considering building a model of one. Has anybody any idea where I could find any plans?

Thanks for replying Doug. Steam is simple I wish I understood electronics. It will be come clear soon I hope. The steam passages inside the frame are the difficult bits t o explane. The 4 holes in the end drilled 1-1/4ins along the frame they have to miss the pivot hole & connect to holes in the port face to be drilled later. I do like to design my own engines.
