Keep informed with professional quality images of interesting rollingstock from around Australia.
It would be an XCL.
Oh, and the friction wedges being in the sideframe indicates that it was a bogie of Industrial Steels manufacture to a "National" design. This was the competitor to Bradford Kendall (now Bradken) who manufactured Ride Control bogies, licenced from American Steel Foundries (ASF).
G'day RI,I agree it would be an XCL (being a former 2CL), but XCL is still an older code. I am looking for a post 1980 code - of which one does not seem to exist.Also, Industrial Steels are not recorded for making 2CL or XCL bogies - only BK and Com Steel. I suspect the CSC cast mark is Com Steel. It is likely that Industrial Steels became Com Steel. CheersChris
Now known as a XLA bogie.cyaBL262000
Certainly not an XLA. Cheers.
Almost a Lower Hung but with 36" dia wheels and 5'9" wheelebase and a straight frame. See here, http://www.robx1.net/b526_550/b531_29.htmSP
