60xx 1962c bogie

This interesting view shows the additional strengthening pieces welded to the top sideframes of the King's bogie following the alarming discovery of cracks which resulted in two bogie failures in January 1956.
The leading additional section is just above the top three large bolts behind the second coil spring hanger with the second piece seen above the similar three bolts just ahead of the trailing bogie wheel.
