they are the steam pipes for outside cylinders; a plain fabrication would do it if casting doesn't exist.

They are the cylinder steam pipes, I don't think you will get a casting for them as they are usually fabricated from brass a formed cover fitted to smokebox and running board.

What does it say on the boiler Backhead should be stamped with the SWP

Strictly a guess mine was 80 psi

If you donít know you need to get it tested then have the gauge dead weight calibrated and red lined

My aim is for a accurate part with a good finish

sadly I know nothing about loco's but I have just bought a 3.5" gauge one it has run but was partially stripped?? why?? and a few parts are missing, i am trying to restore it but I dont think I will run it, but want it right. I can see me coming back for help in the future. It would be great If I had a set of plans, sadly they are expensive.
I have had a great deal of help in the past and it a a great boon to have so many talented engineers to assist me & I thank them all.

Hi

If it's the LBSC Doris then the build articles are available so you may not need the plans. Have a look here http://www.john-tom.com/LBSC/Doris.zip
