Welcome. The Society owns the preserved British Railways Standard 5MT Steam Locomotive 73082 Camelot, which runs on the Bluebell Railway in Sussex, Southern England. Follow the links to learn more about us.
Castings bolted on around the steam pipe to the cylinder on the right hand side. These seal the opening in the smokebox and prevent air being drawn in and destroying the partial vacuum when the engine is working. 18 July, 2015. P GIBBS.
