June 2021

The video below shows a new tyre having its inner profile machined for our Brill railcar 106 power bogie overhaul, prior to heating and shrink-fitting of the tyre onto the wheel.

This video shows NM25 having the front set of driving wheels removed to service bearings. The piston rods and retaining bolts are removed and the axle is lowered and removed using the Drop Pit Jack.

The bearings are then removed, old white metal melted out, new white metal recast in the bearing brasses, and the new bearings machined, ready for many more years of service.
