Them's the brakes.......

For suburban rollingstock, Steam Era's W car bogies need to be enhanced with fore and aft brake extensions. The bogie above takes the modification slightly further as it is built for a driving trailer, and as such also has wheel guards. For reasonable running clearance I have also attached the two sets of steps directly to this bogie rather than brace them off the carriage. The pre-painting photo above shows these changes.
