Wanted: a Brill 21E axle box for Glasgow 1017. Can you help Summerlee?

The casting on the original axle box on Glasgow 1017 at the Summerlee Heritage Museum has recently cracked and a new casting has proven difficult to source. Can anyone help Summerlee to source a new Brill 21E axle box? If so please either leave a comment below or email gareth@britishtramsonline.co.uk and we will pass it on the team at Scotland’s only museum tramway.

    Given modern progress in casting technology using plastic based moulds, might this be an occasion where the reduced costs of producing moulds by this means rather than timber formers is a long term remedy to re-creating long out of production items?

    What is interesting is that the tram’s proper truck is still in existence as it was bought for Leicester 76, under which it still is.
