Buffer Beam Construction

Today marks the day that the first part of the Claud was constructed. This is a huge day for us and the project. We would like to thank everyone for helping and supporting us so far in the build. The plate still needs to be machined and drilled, once the rest of the frames have been funded. I will also add that we have a stand at the NNR September gala on the Saturday and Sunday.

Once again Thank you all,

Claud Board.

Hello All,

Today the group received a 3D printed Lamp bracket from our CAD man.
The bracket is a 1 to 1 scale to original bracket.I hope you agree that it looks very good. Can't wait to see the real thing.

Epping and Ongar Gala 2016

I would like to start with a massive thanks, again, to the EOR for having us back for their steam gala weekend. The Claud team thoroughly enjoyed the event, it was great meeting up with all the other new-builds and talking to the public. We have come away with many ideas on how we can progress the project and gain support. So watch this space!

Thanks again!

New year New drawings

Welcome to 2016 Claud fans.

We start off this year with some progress in CAD work. The CAD work shown below, which are in the first stages of modelling are: 3 different types of lamp brackets, the large 7 foot driving wheels and the Con rod. We hope to continue on with the smaller parts while the work on the frames and larger components are completed in the background.

All the Best.
