Some more snaps from Waverley HQ (that’s still Glasgow in case you were wondering!)

The bottom valve plate following lapping (arty “macro” shot!).
“Water” and steam ends of the air pump reunited at beginning of rebuild.
What is Kenny Henderson (left) about to say? Caption competition?
Various stages of loose assembly of the steam and water ends of one of the feed pumps. It’s much bigger than it looks in the engine room.
John Lees lends a hand, honest!

Loch Katrine Reward

As a reward for all our recent efforts, Kenny Henderson took us all on the SS Sir Walter Scott on Loch Katrine on Sunday 16 April. Quite brave I thought!

I have sent a couple of snaps (including some of our party missing the boat and steam toasted marsh mallows!). It gives a bit of an unusual angle to the rebuild.

Left to right: Ian McCorkindale, David Cullen, Dan MacKay, Al Black, John Russell, Gordon Reid, Derek Murray, Aileen Kerr, Ken Henderson and Stuart Mears.
Sir Walter Scott after we had got off at Stronachlachar.
How to make steam driven toasted marshmallows, don’t try this at home.
Have hat, will travel.
Half of our party (who shall remain nameless unless I start to receive the bribes soon guys!) decided to go on the afternoon cruise after we had all been for lunch. Half of us stayed behind to photograph their departure. This is them missing the boat!
