Product Description

Springs, suspended in shackles, for fitted stock. They are 40" long (measured between the points where the top leaf attaches to the shackles), 4" wide and have 4 plates of 3/8" thickness. One print provides 4 springs. These springs are correct for the GWR Y2 and Y1 fruit-vans (details taken from a GA drawing of a Y2 in Atkins et al., GWR wagons) but may serve for other vehicles with similar suspension. Typically, this form of shackled suspension was found on earlier vehicles, later designs having instead "J" hangers supporting the springs via rods and rubber pads. Exact-scale springs of this pattern are slightly beyond what Shapeways can currently print, so I have adapted the model slightly for printability. The top leaf is thickened from 3/8" to ~7/8" scale equivalent and the second leaf is lengthened by 1.5" scale equivalent to better support the top leaf where it meets the shackles.
