7/8 Brake assembly installed on rear truck           Return to MSR&LHA Home page

Rear truck with brake rigging temporarily in place, checking for major clearance problems. None were found. The rigging components are a mixture of old and new parts: The beam is new, with old braces riveted in place (underneath out of sight); pins are new; links are repaired old; brake shoe holders are junk, and are in the process of being replaced with new castings, as will the brake shoes (not in place).
