Congratulations! A very nice engine has been created. I like the green color. I googled a bit for a Bolton No 7 and was amazed that it had a 1 1/2 inch bore. That's a nice size.

Greetings Michael

This has created a very attractive classic design of engine, the brick plinth presentation and the colour suits it very well: runs beautifully too...  Dave

The Bolton 7 has some close replications of the early  ( 1960 ?) Unicorn engine by Westbury  I believe.
The valve chest is on the other side, but that is no matter as prototypes offered engines as either R of L side operation
Comments on this are welcome as I am very unfamiliar with the Bolton, but am building a Unicorn presently.

The work done by Terry is really beautiful !
