An example of the casting work I have done - O-scale freight truck with functioning equalisation - and genuine American black walnut bolster.  I had expected to find some shrinkage in the axle-boxes because they are a big lump compared to the arch-bars but they were fine, all portions of the sideframes turned out at intended size.
