    I want to see a copy of a GWR drawing for either the 8'0" or the 9'0" American bogies... do you have a copy or know where one can be found?

    thank you, Graham

    After thought... I should have checked the book of coach drawings by John Lewis wherein can be found drawings for these bogies.

    However, the 8'0" drawing does not provide details of the coil spring between the solebar and the compensating beam - anyone any information on the number of turns? outside diameter?

    regards, Graham

    Have you tried the Great Western Trust at Didcot?
