Post-Olympic work

I have made almost no progress on my projects in the past month due to being a volunteer at the Olympics - OK, and playing trains occasionally too!!
Today I got a bit of time to myself and I got some work on the Fairlie done:
1) Made piston rods
2) Attached pistons
3) Drilled rear cylinder covers for fixing bolts

So, in terms of the cylinders, that leaves:
1) Finish turn pistons
2) Make piston rod glands
3) Machine valves
4) Make valve rods and buckles

And then I can get the cylinders on to the frames. Now that will be progress!!!
