Work on HL No.2 Continues

Jim making a gland ring for a steam pipe joint
Ryan cleaning flanges on the balance
pipe for the saddle tank
Malcolm in action cutting gaskets
There is still a fair amount of work to do on HL No.2, including lining and fitting the chimney, fabricating and fitting the steam pipes in the smokebox, checking and fitting the injectors, plumbing the vacuum brake gear, and refitting many smaller pipes and linkages.   Beyond the workshop, painting and lining out in particular while take time, skill, patience and effort.
