Easterbrook lever frames

Easterbrook 1872 Pattern

Easterbrook built a number of different pattern frames over the period 1867 to 1886, and this example demonstrates the final design, one of only two types to go into any sort of production.

However, only small numbers were built, examples being found on the Great Northern North eastern, London Tilbury & Southend and Furness Railway.

A distinct feature of these frames was the crude quadrant arrangement, made of two plates bolted together each end.

The example illustrated here is at Green Road, on which more details can be found in the Photo Gallery
