Flying Scotsman – Tender Wheels

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series Building the Hachette Flying Scotsman

The spacers added to the tender chassis pretty much ensure that the tender chassis is assembled straight and true, but I thought I would pull out the eight tender wheels from their packs and fitted them to the tender chassis to make sure everything looks OK.

I’m going to chemically blacken the wheels to help to combat rusting, I’ll cover that in a future post once I’ve bought the stuff for it. For now, enjoy the wheels naked!
