GA review[edit]

GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    a (fair representation): b (all significant views):
  5. It is stable.
  6. It contains images, where possible, to illustrate the topic.
    a (tagged and captioned): b (lack of images does not in itself exclude GA): c (non-free images have fair use rationales):
  7. Overall:
    a Pass/Fail:

Again, I made a few simple edits to ensure that (a) the article complied with the majority of WP:MOS (e.g. section headings, citation positions and the use of the en-dash) and (b) remained neutral in tone. My only reservation is the shortage of different reliable sources, but this is a niche article, so having then re-reviewed the article, I'm promoting to GA.

Technical details please[edit]

Since the special attention given to this class is due to its special usefulness on the sharply curved Lyme Regis branch, I would like to see some technical explanation. (It's outside my field so I don't think I can do this.)

How exactly does the radial axle work? Is there lateral restraint or is it free? How is the suspension maintained when the axle has shifted? Is the diagram at relevant to this class? Does the centre of rotation of the bogie move laterally too? What exactly were the modifications done to enable it to transfer to the Lyme Regis branch? What were the axle loads, and what was the adhesive weight?
