My 5" Britannia rebuild is coming to an end - if there is one!

I am drawing up the parts for the above wagon so that i can get them punched out at work.

I will be building the welded version. In drawing up the bits and pieces its becoming clear that some item do not fit, or i have not interpreted them correctly.

Does anyone have a photo of the buffer beam where it attaches to the sole bars?

Can’t see any of my useful photos- but currently modelling a similar wagon (O gauge and in polystyrene for now) but I believe the sole bar ends are shaped to continue between the webs of the headstock beam.

I will try to look out some of my photos of wagon chassis (or photos of the GL5 chassis I saw at Bristol this year?).
