Welcome to this, the first CD-rom based Instruction and Prototype Guide which we have developed. We have taken advantage of the medium to provide much more detail than we can include in traditional paper-based Instructions and Prototype Notes. In particular we have been able to use step-by step constructional photographs to accompany the full instruction drawings, which we have used wherever possible instead of voluminous written notes. These are backed up by selected prototype photographs which are quick and easy to view. We hope you will find this new way of presenting our instructions helpful when building your model, and welcome your comments on it.

One of the main innovations in this kit is the provision of “working” inside motion driven off a standard axle using cams instead of the usual crank and split axle approach. We have included a large amount of material around this feature, both model and a set of photographs of the preserved 4027 whilst its boiler was off the frames. Hopefully this will give you all of the information you need to successfully build this part of the kit.

Navigation – you can use the “BACK” button on your Internet browser and the menu on the left hand side of each page to move around the guide. Click on any of the diagrams, photographs or etches to display it full size on the page. When you have selected the picture or diagram you will see a small square in the bottom right hand corner – this is an expansion button and allows you to “zoom in”. (If you can’t see the button at first, move your mouse around this corner and the top left corner of the picture until the button appears).
