The new boiler parts from Israel Newton arrived over the Bank Holiday weekend. The new barrel piece will form the front section of the boiler (see picture 14 giving the 'before' shot) and also the smokebox as was previously the case.  The smoke box was cut off to ease boiler stripping and before it was known that barrel section also needed replacing.
