More Briget Questions

Hello
I will apologise now for my stream of questions
I have now purchaced the part built Bridget I was talking about.
Basicly it has the boiler, body work and pipe work to install, so no machineing or really technical engineering

I have no diagrams of where any of the pipe go and are a few pipes and the injector missing
Having taken it to the club I am now alot wiser about how it works and most of the pipework

One that i am not sure , but it seem to be obvious, but thought i would check
coming off the super heater in the smokebox, there is a small out let that obviously lets out steam, the only place i can see this connects to is another small connection on the bottom of the smokebox, looking up i beleive this is a snifler valve
does this sound correct ?

Thanks in advance

CHris

Chris, if Reeves cannot/will not supply you with a single sheet from the drawings, Ken Swann certainly will. I have done just that in the past with Julliet safety valves. Also do not worry about asking questions, that is what this part of our site is for. It is often said that the only 'silly' question is one that doesn't get asked.

maybe a long shot but i see that antique steam are selling a bridget maybe he could photocopy the relevant page if the loco comes with drawings.

Thanks for the replies
I pulled up the contact details for Ken Swan and had a chat with him this afternoon
I have just posted a cheque to him for a full set of Bridget drawings, I thought it can't hurt to have them for future reference
Thanks
Chris

I would agree Chris, never a bad plan to have the full set.
