Cylinder NewsBen Dingley has just sent me a message to say that the Cylinders have been cast!
This casting occurred last week and the first sand mould was broken open on Monday of this week (it is assumed that the second has been opened by the time you read this). Following removal from the sand moulds the castings will be dressed to remove the runners and risers and vents.
It is hoped that they will be delivered to Sheffield Park at the end of this week, possibly Friday, but this is to be confirmed. The castings as delivered will still require seasoning and machining, so it will be a while before they are installed between the frames!
