Help needed - GE Section Quintuplet Set Numbering & brakes

Post by Norfolkman » Sun Nov 19, 2017 9:03 pm

A friend of mine is embarking on the building of an old Ian Kirk GE section Quintuplet set. He is unable to find anywhere the individual coach numbers within each set or what the range of set numbers were? Harris' books aren't any help in this respect. Also does anyone have any photos of the underframe detail in particular the fixing of the air brakes and what was visible from outside of the frames.

Thanks

Steve
