The diameter of the S.S. Bannockburn's wheel is 13 ft. 6 in. while the pitch is 14 ft. 3 in.
The locomotive works has just completed a fine job. When the S.S. Bannockburn came out from the old country she broke one of her buckets on her wheel about the centre. The wheel is a very expensive article and Foreman Whitelaw undertook to cast a new piece. The process is technically called "burning." It was a big success and the wheel looks as good and is as substantial as the day it left Liverpool. This is the first time this work has been attempted on such a large wheel in Canada, and the officials of the works are greatly pleased with Mr. Whitelaw's genius. The wheel that was broken last summer by the Bannockburn will be repaired in the same way.
