|2553: RIGID BOGIE FRAME 8FT WHEELBASE|
These units provide a frame onto which MJT cast whitemetal cosmetic bogie sides can be fitted to make a rigid bogie with low down weight.
They consist of an etched brass 'outside bearing' subframe which will accept standard bearings and wheelsets from Gibson, Jackson, Maygib, Ultrascale, etc. The frame can be mounted on the coach underframe using either a press stud - which is supplied - or an 8BA screw and nut. The press stud allows the bogie to be attached and removed easily and it can be a 'plug in' replacement for an existing MJT CCU. Alex Jackson couplings may also be fitted. To finish the bogie the modeller must provide bearings and wheelsets to the appropriate gauge and cosmetic side frames. MJT cosmetic bogie sideframes MJT 2406 SR 8 ft Steam, MJT 2414 Gresley 8ft Heavy Duty and MJT 2416 LNER/GNR 8ft Fox are suitable for use with this CCU but any sideframes with the correct wheelbase can be accommodated provided the rear face is filed flat.
Brass Pin Point bearings - waisted (MJT 4009) and shouldered (MJT 4010) - are suitable for use with this frame.
Provision is made on the frame to attach an MJT coupling tongue with a standard NEM 362 pocket which is available separately (MJT 2580).
