I am very grateful to Ian Henderson from The Clan Project for adding a couple of descriptions below...
(Apologies for the horribly messy nature of this web page - I just don't have time to format it correctly at the moment!)

Henderson writes "On the left is the Brake Cross beam. This is attached
through the link to the engine brake shaft brake lever. In effect
this is a type of bell crank with the shaft being part of the assembly.
I'm pretty sure that on the right is a spring hanger foot."

Henderson writes "This is looking over the middle and rear driving axle
cannon boxes. The riveted area is where the 2" frame extensions meet
the main frames. Immediately above the trailing axle is the Front
Firebox Support and Truck Pivot. The cast vertical frame stretcher at
the top of the picture is different from the Lot 242 Clan drawings as
the triangle is much shallower. You may know that the Lot 242 Clans
used the cast steel frame stretchers prototyped on 71000 so the
vertical stretchers may well be different"
