Shakespeare has supplied a number of high-integrity cylinder castings for a steam train restoration project in the UK. The cylinder castings were manufactured using poly patterns; an ideal cost effective process for low quantity, complex, precision castings. The 2 tonne machined cylinder castings, left hand and right hand, were installed to the train engine chassis as shown below.
