Had to be made. We had hoped that some others would be correct so put off making new ones. Once it was discovered they were not correct, a pattern was sent to the foundry..

Now that the Fall Work Weekend has passed, (What a success) will it be time to bring in the roofer to complete the metal roof on the #67 box car? Have the new castings arrived from the foundry?

AFAIK, a specialty contractor needs to install a new metal roof...proper foundry-cast roller assemblies are to be installed to hang the waiting new doors on their metal tracks...and the original hand brake staff and wheel are to be re-mounted and chain-connected to B-end brake shoe truck linkage.
