While spares are awaited to finish the bissel truck attention has shifted to the front bogie of the NG10 in Bloemfontein. Our picture gallery shows Isak vd Berg profiling the wheel flanges which were then mounted in the bogie and trembled to settle them. As they were misaligned and the axleboxes did not have the desired play to correct this, liners were welded to the bogie frame and then machined to the correct size. Remetaled axle boxes were fitted to the wheel journals and the bogie reassembled. As Sandstone has a complete set of original drawings for the NG10 new axle box covers were fabricated and the bogie is now complete and on rail
