The axleboxes are of the Athermos mechanically-lubricated type. All the accepted components of an Isothermos axlebox are incorporated, namely: a bearing ensuring copious fluid film lubrication over the whole journal, an oilflinger conveying a large volume of oil to the bush; an oil sealing ring shrunk on the axle; and a safety pad which effectively protects the oil flinger from damage. The special features peculiar to this new axlebox are; a novel guiding system consisting of forked links mounted in Silenblocs which permit the axlebox to move vertically without fore and aft deviation; and a novel device allowing a controlled lateral play of 20 mm which has a marked effect in easing the running on sharp curves.
