PVH 1 Progress 1.
Front left and rear right views of the near completed below-footplate section (sans buffers, sand pipes, sills and painting) showing the battery boxes, sanding boxes, steps (nb. the flared rear steps are to clear the rods - a prototypical feature) and other minor detail. Following a suggestion in Continental Modeller, the drive rod has only been actually connected to the minimum number of counterweights required to operate, this reducing the risk of complications in this complicated area!
