Truck side frames
The Custom Brass truck side frames are removed from the original brass trucks to be affixed to the Stanton drives.
Once the side frames are removed from the original truck the back side (#2 in the photo) is filed flat for a smooth surface to glue a .010" piece of styrene to, ACC was used for this (#1 & #3). The affixed styrene was trimmed to the contours of the frame and filed smooth (#4).
I have no knowledge of what all this underbody equipment is or what functions they perform, I will replicate what is see as best as possible.
I believe the equipment with the letter "A" below is a blower to cool the traction motors. If anyone knows the nomenclature or function of the numbered items below please leave a comment!
