|2518: CCU 8 FT 9 IN WHEELBASE FOR BR MK.6 POWER BOGIE|
Carriage Compensation Unit
These etched brass units for bogie vehicles provide a suspension system with the following characteristics:-
• Ability to compensate for changes in vertical track alignment and any degree of cant.
• Enhanced stability of vehicle body and bogies.
• Free running to allow scale length trains to be hauled.
They consist of an etched brass 'outside bearing' subframe which will accept standard bearings and wheelsets from Gibson, Jackson, Maygib, Ultrascale, etc. The CCU is mounted on the coach underframe using a press stud which is supplied. This arrangement allows the bogie to be attached and removed easily. 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. THis CCU is designed specifically for use with MJT cosmetic bogie sideframes MJT 2447 BR 8ft 9in Mk.6 Power Bogie when operated as a non-motorised, dummy, unit.
