Smooth ride for the bullion van

Fastline Simulation - Bullion Carriers: An in development render of the NWX Bullion Van for Train Simulator 2014. The B5 bogies are now virtually complete and just need some rivet and bolt head details to complete.
While the HBA/HEA hoppers have been locked down for testing I've managed to find the time to complete most of the work on the B5 bogies to go under the bullion van and bullion flat.

For those who've followed the blog for a while you'll know that bogies are never a popular task for me so it's good to have this out of the way. All that remains now is to add some rivet and bolt detail.

Fortunately, the B4 bogie that's more commonly used under coaching stock and some vans is a relatively easy conversion with only a couple of components to change and even fitting hydraulic dampers is straightforward! These will be a pleasure to reuse under some other planned models!
