All the parts needed for the bogie have either been ordered, or are ready for assembly. A spare 3'3" pony wheelset from Barry 8F 48518 has already been obtained and a second pony wheelset will be obtained from another 8F. The bogie springs also from 48518 have been refurbished by Owen Springs, and the axle boxes and horn guides are currently in storage. Assembly of the bogie is due to take place during 2014 at Tyseley Loco Works.
