Copper sheet C107 (formerly BS2875) for Locomotive Fireboxes
The South Devon Railway is able to supply copper sheets large enough
to construct new locomotive fireboxes! Satisfied customers now include
the Paignton & Dartmouth Railway whose newly recommissioned locomotive,
7827 Lydham Manor, recently returned to traffic with a new firebox made
from copper sourced and supplied via the SDR workshops at Buckfastleigh.

The copper sheets come in the following sizes:-
10' x 8' x 5/8"
8' x 6' x 1"
The copper is to C107 (BS 2875) Phosphorous Deoxidised Arsenical Copper and is from a European source.
Another heritage line is about to take delivery of four sheets being sufficient to construct a firebox for one of their locomotives.
