What a superb project, wish I'd found that.

Please keep us informed of progress.

Are you using original plans or can you measure the original?

Stumbled on it by accident on Youtube , if you put in Mann patching roller should be there.

Steamscenes had about 34 images so used those as a basis and scaled from all as good as i can get it.

Best classed as a -- looks like it model / representation -- hopefully when done.

I have driven the Mann steam tractor which is at Hollycombe. It is an interesting thing to drive, the same front end as the roller. I see that the safety valve outlet is beside the chimney on the roller, on most Mann engine sit feeds into the chimney, which is not helpful when blowing off as it draws the fire more. I have seen that roller at the Great Dorset Steam Fair a few times

I look forward to seeing your progress

The Mann tractor at Hollycombe is currently away for work on the boiler and some other remedial work. When it is back I can get details, measurements and photos as needed as I am there a couple of days a week. Keeps me out of mischief in retirement
