In a vacuum

Work continues on various fronts. With the tender coming on a treat, the braking needs looking into. Here Gary Davies is trial fitting the piston to the vacuum cylinder.



For your next GWR pub quiz, it's worth remembering the Hawksworth tenders had the vacuum tanks mounted laterally rather than longitudinally as Collett's tenders had previously standardised. Just one of the many differences in the two Hawksworth tender designs.
