  All of the holes on the bogie frame plates have been drilled and reamed so, today, Sam was machining the bottom surface. Once that is complete, the final job is to machine the faces for the axlebox cut-outs. You can see a video by following this link.

The plan is to start riveting of the buffer beam on Friday 20 May.
