Several years ago I bought a part built 3.5" Lion. The frame members were of cast bronze and had all the rivets and detail cast in, this included the horns. The smoke box door was also bronze and similarly adorned.Can anyone tell me who made or sold these castings ? Was there a set of drawings that took account of the above ? The only drawings I have seen require the frames to be built up from steel. Noel.

Regarding he smokebox front I don't think it was ever described in full or drawn in the magazine.

Cast frames or tender frames were usually the production of individual suppliers - if I had to guess I would suggest perhaps W.K.Waugh, trading as Wilwaugh - but this is only a guess. These 'extra' castings were something he often produced alongside the standard ones. Long gone and when his passing was announced in ME there was no indication that his patterns were taken over by anyone else.
