I am installing dummy valve gear to 7mm models of the above locos that I have recently acquired, but am having some difficulty in establishing the inclination of the cylinders in the frames and the general disposition of the 'visible' elements of the gear forward of the tank sides. I have examined all of my reasonably extensive library but cannot identify clear diagrams or photographs of the arrangement of the gear in relation to the frames.
Can anyone please help by pointing me to any reasonably accessible references in published material?

A sectional elevation and plan of the 4-6-2T is in W. A. Tuplin's North Western Steam (Allen & Unwin, 1963) opposite page 113.

Quentin,

An enquiry to the drawings officer might be worthwhile

Alternatively have a good look through the drawings list as per the link below, on a very quick glance we have drawings of 4-4-2 Precursor, (LOCO 139-142, page 10) and 5FT 6IN 4-6-2 Prince of Wales Plan (LOCO 134-138, page 12)

Would of course mean a visit to Kenilworth to have a look at them

Dave

Thank you Harry and David. I have ordered a copy of North Western Steam from Amazon and hope that will help. (If not it will be a good addition to my library!)
A visit to Kenilworth is 'not on' for me I am afraid, living as I do on the east coast of Scotland.
