Those seat casting are wonderful. They are some piece of pattern making. I hope there are a couple of spares for damaged or missing seats in the W&W #3. I am looking forward to seeing the green plush part of the seats. My grandfather was a pattern maker and he would have approved, I am sure.

Thank you so much for the pictures and report. Work is going on steadily and smoothly week after week and that is what most surprises me as a French person.

As James mentioned in his July 2021 Work Reports here, Alan Downey started the setup to machine the pedestal castings for coach No. 9's trucks today.  A couple of photos I got today, sans Alan except his elbow in the second photo:





Compare the pedestal photos with the first photo Brendan recently posted on wheel replacements for historic twin coach No. 3 here.

Nicole was preparing the next new axle for journals, to be ready after the wheels are pressed on:
What–me worry?
