Does anyone know what working pressure a 5" Speedy GWR 1500 loco should run at. I can't find a reference to this either on the drawings or LBSC's book on Speedy.

Shouldn’t test pressure working pressures be documented on the boiler certificate?

Yes indeed it should be. Test pressure is 180psi in this case.

Mine runs at 90psi too. Should be dictated by the pressure test cert but what if it's not got a cert! Another of the vagaries of model drawings! I seem to remember the only indication of WP on my Juliet drawings purchased 40 odd years ago and now too faded to read was a sketch of the pressure gauge with the needle at 90!
