Volume/pressure is self-regulating. In the original design, the
high-pressure and low-pressure cylinders are made to proportions which
will represent the desired match - usually half the pressure in the l-p
system as in the h-p, but if there were an imbalance, the actual working
pressure in the l-ps would simply rise or drop to equalize with the
volume . . . no problem.
Like Nelson, I can't recall an instance of a compound Garrett . . . I'mWere the Garratts classified as simple articulateds as well?
not sure about Fairlies, though (the ones which were two complete
engine/boiler assemblies joined at a single cab with single controls) I
seem to recall seeing one with mismatched cylinders but can't remember
