    Up next the very distinctive compensation beam and leaf springs. All very nice castings as would be expected. Only downside that the spring retaining straps were too short so had to be remade from strip.

    All of the pins on the whole assembly needed to be pivotable to be able to remove the axle boxes if required which took a little while but with a good dose of chemical black all worked out nicely.
