Mendip Steam Restorations have agreed to take on this job which will mean removing the old fittings for reuse and making the pipe in two sections. The sections will then be welded together in situ to be sure that they fit correctly. It would be difficult to do a drawing for this!
By making the two ends separately, the complexity of the curves can be reduced to a practical level.
In the meantime, I'll be fitting the exhaust pipes from the engines to the chimneys - which means the chimney repairs need doing urgently!
