Levi, nice, very nice solid clean construction. Why the corner posts?

Thank you Railman. The prototype has the corner posts on it. You'll see it when I finish it and put a picture of the car against the photo.

That is another clue as to who the car operator is.

Hey Bob,

To add, which I forgot. They really aren't corner posts. The car has wood trim on the ends of the car. They aren't posts per se.

Thank you Levi, That makes it a rather unique car.

Levi,

My reaction when seeing the simulated corner posts was “good for him; he modeled exposed corner posts, which is very seldom done but should be.” I’ve seen them in period drawings—sometimes with a chamfer—and might not have been uncommon.

Sometimes corners and fascias were painted in a contrasting color, maybe indicating exposed posts.

Lots of “mights” and “maybes” in what I wrote, so a little research would be appropriate on my part.

I have use a Kadee coupler pocket top as a "centerplate" on Tahoe trucks.
