Harold, as one who has done this sort of carpentry, I find the level of workmanship you have created to be nothing short of amazing. Your joinery on those doors is superb! I can't wait to see the whole project once it is at the museum where we all can see and enjoy your handiwork up close and personal.

Harold,
           If I recall correctly, the toilet room in the W & Q#3 is missing. But I have a drawing that calls for a toilet room in the #2 and #3. Are you planning to put them into the old and new passenger cars?

Ted, you must be referring to the Salon (as shown on the J&S drawings).  It is definitely still there in #3, just no fixtures.  We are planning on replicating it exactly for coach 9.

That picture on the museum's Facebook looks great! All the sills really look good; it is not easy to find top quality lumber these days; Is it yellow pine?

The sills were special order clear douglas fir from Viking lumber.  They had the wood shipped from the west coast, then milled at their location.

I hope a couple good coats of wood preservative goes on that frame before things get covered up....
