I for one was not thinking that!

Juliet but with outside valve-chests and Walschaerts (or Baker, like I think her 'Tich' sister uses?) Gear, too. Neat alteration and oh so much simpler for oiling round and maintenance.

Did you have to make many modifications other than rotating the cylinder blocks and designing the valve-gear, to use that configuration?

My society built a Juliet X 2 (a 7.25 " g.) version - in his original introductory instalment of the building series in ME, LBSC remarked quite a few readers had asked about that, and he wryly suggested it be called Julia!

The problem we met in service was that Mr. Lawrence's original design for suspending the inside Stephenson's Link Motion was inherently weak even when doubled up, not suited to the rigours of heavy portable-track use, and eventually we had to rebuild it with big valve-spindle guides.

Add me to this list. It is great to see actual workshop output for a change. Really nice engines.

Looks superb Tony! Just building one of these too... but all work has stopped currently... while waiting to bore the cylinders. Great to see something that I'm working on in it's finished state.

Thanks for posting Tony , Is the Baker valve gear an option on LBSC's design or your own application? I've seen Juliets with various valve gears, I'm sure a friend had one with slip eccentrics, or maybe stephensons, memory going!
