I'm hoping that the N Soc get their Gresley bogies back in production soon.

The NGS Gresley bogies are the 8' wheelbase ones that were used for the full brakes. The Silver Jubilee used 8'6 bogies - the triple restaurant car used 10' bogies under the articulation points after November 1937 (8'6 before that). Interestingly the second (non-catering) triple set in the formation (rebuilt from a twin due to the success of the service) retained 8'6 bogies throughout its life.

I have your 8'6" bogie prints and plan to use them on some rebuilt Cavendish LNER coaches.  I have not put my mind to the Jubilee build yet and if the Cavendish coaches work out I may go that way.  the Cavendish rebuilds have a 3D printed coach former and are therefore very lite. My worry is a FUD bogie might wear too much with a metal coach and the additional weight.
