It's a normal low side cast iron frame. Pre merger, not that it would have affected the design. Why would we throw away the form book and start designing new concept bellframes?


Once someone secures it to the tower it will perform to expectation just like Northampton and New York do which both post date it.

Is it the same type of frame? T,E&S haven't been hanging since the 
1890s. Neither has E&S. Only Taylor's have been hanging since then. 
Is the frame to a normal historical Taylor spec or is there now some 
sort of hybrid design possibly incorporating C channels instead of 
RSJs for example.
