They may have come with the castings for the engine from England. I think similar shoes are available here.

The last thing was to finish the brakes. I made the links to connect the brake hanger to the brake shaft. Bill brought an Ohlenkamp injector with him on Wed. and we plumbed it up before he left for home.

He took it to the Manatee track in Parish, Fl. last weekend and I got a lot of reports that it was running fine all weekend. Good news.

Yes, Fred has done wonderful work on Romulus and we down in Sarasota thank him sincerely! We ran it for three days at the Parrish Florida Live Steam meet with a borrowed tender. Bill Yoder
