1/21 A - Checking fit of spring pads on truck frame part           Return to MSR&LHA Home page

This is the main truck bolster that this truck will be built around. Bolster pedestals are bolted into place, but the spring pads are simply at rest, in place. The nearer of the pads is an original, and has the front left corner chipped off, which will not hurt it. The rear pad is a reproduction, and is a bit wide to seat properly into place, and will require machining a bit on the sides to correct this condition.
