It's very apparent that the new "loading dock" is a vast improvement over the woods track.  I would suggest scraping down the mud and getting some stone down on the vehicle side of things.

Here's our chance to add the missing period after ASS'N   .

Indeed, good catch.

Maybe also a brake wheel and cut levers on the couplers?

The parkinglot will have to settle out. There was a foot of gravel there before the work, and with the clay being moved around it blended with the gravel. It should improve with time.

Can someone tell me the dimensions in inches of the six longitudinal boards that make up the car frame that run the length of the car? I don't need their length, but what are their other dimensions (height x width)? Thanks.

Looking at the boxcar plans from which we built the replica car, the outer sills are 4-3/4" x 8" and the center 4 sills are 3-3/4" x 7".
