Last but not least for 2012, here is the December newsletter, which went out to our followers and supporters over a week ago and is now being made publicly available. This provides a break-down of the current status of the project along with plans beyond the fabrication of the smokebox door.
The newsletter is in PDF format, which requires Adobe Reader to view. If you can’t view the newsletter, download Adobe Reader from here.

The world didn’t come to an end today so we still have an engine to build. With your support 2013 will be an exciting year!
Slipping this in before Christmas, we’re thrilled to announce that after a long and extensive process we’ve selected Keyte Smith Ltd. of Bingham, Nottinghamshire as the supplier for the outer smokebox door and the contract for the work is currently being drawn up.
Work will commence first thing in the new year. Meanwhile you can support the project with a donation to help speed us along to fabricating the next part. A link to the page on how you can assist can be found at the top of this site. As announced in our latest newsletter we’re in the process of looking into the plates for the front part of the frames.
Further details regarding this and the pending outer smokebox door fabrication will be published here early in the new year. Until then we wish all our followers, supporters and readers a safe and joyous Christmas and a enjoyable and prosperous new year.
2013 will be an exciting year for the project and we want to thank all our supporters in 2012 for helping to get us to where we are today. Thanks to you we’ve come a long way in a short space of time. With your further support 2013 will prove to be a year of substantial progress.
