Harrye visiting the Foundry and being shown round.
Some patterns for castings for the Severn Valley Railway are viewed with the sand moulds for castings. One of the bigger furnaces is fired up for us to see.  Meanwhile, Aluminium road studs are being cast.

Larger items are cast to produce Aluminium tools for plastic moulding trays.
