For my A3, which is approximately the same weight as your K27 will be (depending on boiler construction), there are 4 spring packs of 1/2" wide spring steel, 6 leafs each.  The steel is pretty hard, but I had no trouble machining it with carbide tooling.  Since the K27 has many more packs, I wonder that they are more for looks than for actual suspension.

Nice work!

I know it's not an engine but I love the loco builds. I wanted to build one 30 years ago and never though I would have the skills or equipment. Keep up the good work.

Personally I like the contrast of the brass covers Dale, just depends on whether you are going for a more "real"  (painted) appearance or a more model type (clearcoat) appearance. Really looking forward to seeing everything assembled too!!
