Cylinder Assembly

Mounting the Cylinders to the locomotive.

During the last two months, I mounted the right cylinder to the locomotive (the left cylinder was done last year). This needs to be done very carefully, to get the alignment of the cylinder, piston, crosshead, connecting rod, and driving axle all lined up correctly.

Below is the first result. The wheels and the piston move ok,  You see on the guidebars the temporary marks on setting the travel of the crosshead and the piston.
