  8. 60017 liked LMS2968's post in the thread Progress on newbuild LNWR George the Fifth Class 'Prince George'.

    If there was play in the wheel bearings, the piston thrusts would give some pivoting with or without the centre bearing, although the degree of offset would be negligible. The bearing was part of the overall design and allowed thinner - lighter -...

  13. LMS2968 liked Cosmo Bonsor's post in the thread Progress on newbuild LNWR George the Fifth Class 'Prince George'.
