Re: Re-trucking with TMW Dalman 2-level


The devices that you are referring to are side bearings. These devices are mounted to the tops of each side of the truck bolster consisting of a bracket with a roller centered in it and a contact plate mounted on the car body frame over the truck bolster bracket. This is supposed to support the car body to stabilize the car body when running over rough track reducing body rock. You can find photos of these devices in the car builder's cyclopedias. Suckey was one manufacturer that produced these devices and had ads in the CBC's.
