wooden frame


Explanation:
"Fagverk" is
1.either a publication related to a certain professional field, i.e. a business work (which clearly is not the case here as you talk about locomotives),
OR
2. a wooden frame, i.e. it means "bindverk". This is a wooden frame that holds together paper, wood or other substances.

The Universitetsforlaget's Ordboka says "fagverk"=bindingsverk=rammeverk av tre til å feste papp, plate, panel e l på; rammeverk av tre i murvegg .

  -> Just quoting what the dictionary says. It could very well be any frame made of other material.
