LT Acton Shuttle "Ginny" (Part 2a) Photos
London Transport Acton Shuttle
On bogies at both ends, this is the trailing bogie. I will need to glue on a whitemetal shoebeam at some point as well.
Motored end; the body is just resting on the pivot here so one axle isn't in contact with the rails - once it is screwed down at the correct location this will not happen.
Apologise, blurry undersize. The RH Trailing bogie has had the whitemetal bolster 'borrowed' to connect it to the body as seen here. The small screwdriver roughly marks the point where the motor bogie will be bolted into the underframe.
Blurry close-up of the Trailing Bogie arrangement.
Top-down view of the bogies position relative to their position on the underframe.
Shot taken this morning, was a nice sight to wake up to.
Next step painting, red oxide primer for the roof and bodywork, body will get a coat of red paint. And under frame & bogies will be painted black.
