Details, details...How will you deal with the maybe-damaging floor rail gap at the sliding door path? You're probably not going to raise the door bottom  to clear the rail tops, creating a door-wide crack.  ;)

I have seen 2 different ways to deal with the gap -
Simplest is just 2 "U" shaped pieces, rail head width inside and
2X gap distance long.(or there abouts) Just laid on when needed.

The other is just flat stock bolted to side of rail on inside end - so it swivels up,
The other end has "U" that lays over the outside rail. Like an "L" with the lower
leg folded back

I have a simple wall desk my father made back around 1960-65. It's made of plywood and stained "maple". It has a dropdown front, a center drawer and a couple of shelves. I'd be happy/willing to donate it for your use. You may restain it to suit. I could bring it up when I come for the Christmas event weekend.

Hi Kevin,

I was hoping to recreate as best possible the original wall desk that appears in the photos we have. I wouldn't discount the idea that the desk could be used somewhere though, so some other area of the Railway might have a use for it.

Will the rolling door be built and hung before the snow flies?
Am assuming its lumber has arrived.

Lumber (edge and center bead) should arrive this week.  There will be enough to build the car shed doors and the section house.

Almost time to convene the Hot Stove League  (if its installation is complete).
