David Young sent through the latest picture of progress on the steam mule. It is looking superb and David is taking enormous trouble to ensure the engine is correctly aligned and free running. Note the new slide bar supports (and acorn tops!), matched set of oil pots and the beautiful phosphor bronze cylinder lagging! I must have a magpie tendency as this is one of my favorite bits of engine, along with the copper chimney top on Coffee Pot (see earlier posting)!
