Hi all. I have just started building the Barclay Well tank loco which is being serialized in Model Engineer. I have a problem with the measurements for the weighshaft. If you follow the drawing it brings the weighshaft too close to the brake hanger. Looking at the photos in the Model Engineer its further away. Are there any other builders who have come across this? I'm thinking the measurement from the centre of the front axle to the weighshaft should read 7 5/8 and not 7 5/16 as drawn. Any help appreciated. Anthony

Hi. I now have the correct dimention if there's any other builders wanting to know. The drawing should read 7 11/16 from the centre line of the front axle to the weightshaft hole centre. Anthony
