      Well thanks to the proper identification of the truck I did
      manage to find a nice photo of a Peckham cantilever 6c truck. George
      has indicated that the truck on number 1 is a Peckham extension 9a.
      The 6c appears from first look to be of smaller wheelbase than the
      truck under number 1. The remainder of the details look correct. I
      will do some checking on the number of springs. If intersted take a
      look at,

      It does give me some ideas on how it may be constructed.
      I dug out my MTS catalog and I was as wrong as wrong could
      be. The truck I thought that was similar is a Brill prototype.

      Thanks to all for the assistance
      Bryan
