Walschaerts Valve Gear on a Romulus

I have seen a couple of Romulii (?) with walschaerts valve gear on my travels, so my question is I suppose, do drawings exist for this modification or is it a case of work it out for yourself?
Many Thanks

I was sure this had been asked before on here but I can't find it. Try having a word with Viv Thorpe, I believe he is currently modding his Rommy thus.

Steve,

Some time ago I knocked up a design for this, and checked it using Charlie Dockstader's simulator. So it's just a matter of turning that into steel and off you go. Email me if you're interested.

regards

Peter

Hi Steve
I also have a Romulus and am interested in changing the valve gear to Walschaerts and was wondering how you came on with yours.
