We recently had a question and answers section with the NewBuildSteam website.
Here is a little snippet:
Things have been pretty quiet online recently – is the project still progressing?
Yes the project is progressing well, we are working on completing a CAD
structure of the bogie assembly, ensuring it is updated to the latest
known variations of all the parts.
When finished we will concentrate on building the bogie assembly.
Once constructed it will act as an advertisement and be used for
fundraising for the build. It will be a showcase sample, of skills
needed for the bigger build, as the parts used will be cast, machined,
drilled, forged, engineered and assembled. We have sent drawings for the
frames out to tender.
