Building Irene 4
The coal-fired boiler mounted to the chassis with all fittings (pressure gauge, water gauge, regulator valve, whistle valve, blower valve, Goodall valve, safety valve and lubricator). The wires coming from the servos will be connected to the battery & receiver box.

Top view Irene with opened roof. The battery/receicer box is visible under the roof. Watch the very neat cab lay-out leaving ample space for a driver and fire-man.
