Pack 17 contains Stages 65-68

Stage 65 - Contains the trailing wheel set, end beam, brass bushes & rollers and screws.

Place one of the bushes over the axle projecting from the side of the wheel. Then place the second bush on the other end of the axle.

Loosen the screws that hold the trailing truck beams to the pivot housing. Spread the two beams apart
and insert the bushes at the ends of the axles into the two trailing trucks. Then re-tighten all the screws that were loosened.

Make sure that the trailing wheels turn. If they don’t, try loosening the screws and re-positioning the wheels.

Place one of the rollers in between the semicircular projections of the end beam, then place a 2x5mm screw through the end beam and roller and tighten into place. Repeat this process to fit the second roller in the end beam.

Place the trailing truck assembly and the end beam as shown, then place the ends of the end beam inside the trailing trucks, aligning the holes of both. Tighten a 2 3mm screw into each of the six holes.

Align the screw holes on the other side and tighten a 2x3mm screw into each of them.

This completes the trailing truck/bogie.

Stage 66 - Contains trailing truck equaliser parts.

Start by removing the screws that hold the leaf spring to the fourth wheel set and put the screws to one side.

Turn the underframe over, and remove the screws and nuts of the suspension links and keep them to one side.
Put a short spring counterbalance between the links, pass the screw through the hole and tighten the nut over it.

Fit the two equaliser mounts onto either side of the underframe, behind the fourth wheel set, with 2x3mm screws.

Screw a spring mount and counterbalance bracket into place on either side of the underframe with 2x3mm screws.

Apply a small amount of instant adhesive to the hole in the leaf spring, then insert the slide block into the hole in the spring.

Place a long leaf spring counterbalance through the hole at the end of the spring and secure with a nut. Repeat this process to prepare a second leaf spring.

Place the spring in the spring mount and the leaf spring counterbalance into the counterbalance bracket. Align the holes of the parts. Then tighten a 2x5mm screw into each of the holes.

Take the left trailing wheel equaliser and align the three holes with the three in the short and long counterbalances and the equaliser mount. Tighten a nut over the end of the short counterbalance ,a 2x6mm screw into the equaliser mount and a 2x5mm screw into the long counterbalance. Then repeat to fit the right equaliser.

Re-tighten the screws removed from the leaf springs of the 4th wheel set.

Turn the assembly over and align the holes of the underframe and the trailing truck, as shown in the instructions.
Apply some thread lock to the thread of the pivot screw, and tighten it into the aligned holes of the trailing truck and underframe. Tighten the screw so that the traling wheels remain in contact with the surface of which the rest of the wheel sets are resting.

We now move onto the assembly of the Tender.

Stage 67 - Contains the tender base, left & right underframes and screws.

To distinguish between the front and rear of the tender base, look at the holes at either end as shown in the instructions.
The tender underframes can be identified by the number of screw holes at either end.

Place the right tender underframe onto the tender base, aligning the holes indicated in the instructions. Match up all the holes along the underframe with those onthe base, then tighten a 2x3mm screw into each of the two holes towards the front of the underframe, then a 2x3mm screw into each of the two holes towards the rear of the underframe.

Turn the base around, and align the two holes towards the rear of the left underframe with those in the base. Tighten a further two 2x3mm screws into the holes at the rear, then tighten two 2x3mm screws into the holes towards the front of the left underframe.

Place the first bolster towards the front of the assembly, engaging the slits in the bolster with the underframes. Make sure the bolster is resting flush with the tender base. Tighten four 2x3mm screws into the holes in the bolster. Then tighten four more 2x3mm screws into the other end of the bolster.

Place the second bolster into position in the underframes towards the rear of the tender base assembly. Tighten four 2x3mm screws into one side of the tender. Then tighten four 2x3mm screws into the other end of the bolster.

Repeat for the other side of the tender base, using brass frame D.

Place the diecast front tender base between the side beams and underneath the underframes, push the front into place until the holes are aligned.
