The flat car as it sat in the yard...... amongst the "junk" :D

Image

Bearing blocks, bumpers, side board brackets and brackets for wooden supports.

Image

wheels and axles from where they were put 3 years ago.

Image

Image

Parts in the Shop.

Image

wheel and axle sets on the "rails"

Image

Bearing blocks added.

Image

Close shot of the bearing block. these are plain bearing blocks. meaning the axle rides on a brass piece. on the bottom of the cast is a recess. you back this with cotton waste and pour oil in this hole on the end till it runs out at the wheel and youre ready to roll...... no pun intended :lol:

Image

well whats missing?
