No. 34059 Sir Archibald Sinclair
A visit to South Devon Railway (Engineering) last Wednesday and below are a few photographs which show the stack of pressings and completed syphons for No.21C123 and No.34059 plus other Bulleid fireboxes awaiting construction.
Most are identifiable and the old combustion chamber from No.34059 can also be seen together with new blackheads and crown section. SDR (E) will try and produce a new complete pressings for the combustion chamber area, although it may be in two sections rather than six as at present. Hopefully the new firebox for No.34059 will be placed in the boiler in late May, it will then be returned to the Bluebell.
