Roller bearings in conjunction with a lateral control device are the chief features of this new American design. Separate axleboxes of special design incorporate a built-in friction device for damping out vertical movements and shocks. The new Barber bogie is considerably lighter than the conventional four-wheel cast-steel freight-wagon bogie. Wheel changing is exceptionally easy, as the stabilizer parts, springs, or axleboxes need not be removed when a wheel change is made.
