Centenary 645 Blackpool Corporation Transport bogie

BCT bogie as used by the Centenary class of tram from 1984. The homemade bogie design first appeared on Jubilee 762 although the Centenary cars had a lighter suspension fitted.They were modified somewhat over the years, especially the braking system which tended to freeze up in cold weather. Although rather heavy, from the customers point of view they gave a smooth and reasonably quiet ride.
