A pair of sides and ends - more red cedar strip wood...



Drops right into the sake pockets...

Another interesting car. Your railroad has a very productive car shop.

"A" frame from that kit was way too tall. Made a new pair to use with this car.

Bit of a fast forward on this end top side.

Ladders added, "z" bracing and door runners added, doors built up and installed, and that end of the deck painted since eventually this will get to a state of not being removable. Started in on added some "stuff" to the interior. A few more exterior nbws getting added and more of those to go.... Interior stained and a bit of weathering applied....
