The chassis features sealed self aligning bearings which give exceptionally free running qualities and the brake shoes are fitted with the correct lining material or are plastic. Couplings are of the bar type. Full length footboards enable a passenger to be carried on the back and the inside can be used for a coal pan, oil can or the drivers sandwiches.
