Bill,

The bottom ones were bent that way originally to hook onto framing. The center step is supposed to be like the top 3 originally, but again is like that to catch a framing member, then bent to get it to the proper spacing.

Funny you should mention that - Saturday we were thinking once the Mountain Extension is complete we paint it some bright neon color, park it at the end of the track by 218, with a "Visit the WW&F Railway Museum!" message on it.

Why go with a picture? Take one of Fred's chairs from TOM and set it down by 218. Provide Fred with a small table and some lemonade. ;D

I forgot to add - and a big umbrella, in case it's raining or too hot. :o

Put a chain saw beside the chair so he can explain how he singlehandedly cleared the ROW, which he almost did.

If you keep talking about Fred and his use of a chain saw, he's going to start looking for those different type of tree call a homosapien, it has only Four limbs to cut. You might say I'm branching out in a new direction!!!

So you are saying Fred is "a cut above the rest"?

Is Box Car 67 considered completed, or just on hold due to other projects?

It is on hold.  It needs door tracks and some grab bars, among other things.  I think the doors themselves are done, just got no place to hang them.

No place to hang them, or nothing to hang them with?
