castings for the front truck from "Little Engines". The hearts swing
without binding after hours of filing. The axles, wheels and journals
were made out of stock. A few months after I finished it, I decided to
extent the distance between the wheel centers from 9" to 11" as per the
GS-4. The picture below is with 9" centers.
Here's it is below stretched to 11" centers.
The next step was
to work on the rear trucks. Again, the castings were bought from
"Little Engines". The wheels, axles and journals were made from stock.
