Photos from John Milner's workshops
A visitor to this website offered me scans of some photos he took in the
late 1980's in John Milner's workshops, as he collected some pre-machined
parts for his Hunslet. These are of a completed, Milner built Hunslet, also
a bare chassis under construction. There is a wealth of defail here, including
some differences from the drawings (no prizes for finding them..)
An interesting feature of the model is the dummy displacement lubricator.
This is a prominent feature of the prototypes in quarry days, and I like it
so much that my locomotive will have to have one !! When I get round to doing
it, I will put drawings on this site.
I was so impressed by these photos, that, with the owner's permission,
I've included them here for everyone to see. Click on a thumbnail to
