How about the photo of 50 004 in post #45?
50007 has pucker 50 bogies under it.
I will stick my neck out here and say I think most 37's that had cast bogies had the flat on the front corners and plain rounded rear corners.
Oh dear, just when I thought that "bogie spotting" was a safe hobby.... Brian stops lurking and produces a spanner.
I had considered the possibility that the cast bogie had a square corner to the side frame at one end of the frame and a round corner at the other end of the frame... and then thought "do not be so stupid... there are brake hangers at each end of the frame and if the front brake blocks need retaining then so do the rear brake blocks". So I ignored that thought in spite of the photographic evidence in post #45 - see the second photo which has a cast bogie with a front square corner plus a brake block bracket bolted to that square corner... no brake block bracket at the rear corner and, apparently, no square edge to the rear corner of the frame!
Makes me wonder just how the brake block bracket is attached to the rear corner of a cast frame with square front corner. No wonder that Laurie thinks these diesels are just trouble.
Any other photos of EE bogies Brian?
