Braking news...

Oh I'm on form with the puns this evening...

Tonight I've fitted an approximation of brake shoes to each wheel as well as starting on the brake setup on the roll-wagen itself. I've got some 15mm copper tube cut to size for the vacuum reservoirs, but haven't yet built the actuator. This will go to one side where the two arms are slightly further apart. The brake rigging then runs down the centre of the wagon to each bogie. Once that is done I can add a box to represent the gear drive on the brake wheel and fit those to the outside of the chassis.

After the brake system i'll be moving on to the wagon locking system, and then fine detailing.
